Alumni Seek Fame 
On Operatic Stage 

Joseph Frazier and his wife, the for- 
mer Charlotte Pierson (LVC, '58), are 
steadily gaining recognition in pursuit of 
their musical careers, according to in- 
formation released by the Lebanon Daily 

Frazier, a Lebanon High School grad- 
uate who attended LVC as a special stu- 
dent in the department of music, ap- 
peared recently in the opera, "Judas 
Maccabeus" by Handel, in Brooklyn. In 
the near future he will sing in "L'En- 
fance du Christ" by Berlioz at New 
York City's Carnegie Hall with the Little 
Orchestra Society. 

Frazier and his wife are both mem- 
bers of the chorus in the opera, "The 
Trojans" by Berlioz. This opera will be 
performed at the Philadelphia Academy 
of Music on January 16 under the direc- 
tion of Sir Thomas Beecham with Jan 
Peerce singing the leading role. "The 
Trojans" will also be taken to Carnegie 
Hall and Washington, D. C. 

Valley To Receive $1 1,500 
From Grants And Legacy 

Annual DuPont Funds 
Aid Chem Department 

The Committee on Educational Aid 
of E. I. DuPont de Nemours & Co., Inc., 
has given Lebanon Valley a grant of 
$4,000 to be used during the 1960-61 
academic year, according to information 
released by Dr. Frederic K. Miller, presi- 
dent of the college, and Dr. Howard A. 
Neidig, chairman of the department of 

Dr. Neidig announced that $2,500 of 
the grant is earmarked for use in the 
advancement of teaching in chemistry, 
while $1,500 is an unrestricted supple- 
mentary fund. 

While no immediate announcement has 
been forthcoming on the intended use of 
these funds, it was pointed out that in 
past years Lebanon Valley's Science for 
a Day program has been financed by si- 
milar DuPont grants. 

To Take Effect In September 

Dean Kreitzer outlined to the Student Faculty Council the following new curri- 
culum plan which will go into effect at the start of the next academic year, Septem- 
ber, 1960. 

The changes for the new general college requirements were discussed, and it 
was pointed out that the faculty has been working on this plan for three years in 
order that LV may become more representative of a liberal arts college. General 
requirements will be taken in the first two college years, allowing for more special- 
ized work in the final two years. Important points under the new plan are as

a program of evaluation of SCA and its 

Interviews with faculty, administra- 
tion, and leaders of the various student 
organizations will be held by the guests 
in order to get a complete picture of 
campus life and the part which should 
be played by SCA in contributing to it.

Valley Students Visit 
Moller Organ Company 

The M. P. Moller Organ Company, 
Hagerstown, Md., was the destination 
of thirty organ students on Wednesday, 
January 6. The students, accompanied 
by Mr. and Mrs. Pierce Getz and Mr. 
and Mrs. Postetter of Reading, Pa., were 
the guests of the organ company for a 
dinner in the Hotel Alexander and a 
complete tour of their organ factory. 

This field trip gave the students a first- 
hand view at the mechanisms of the or- 
gan. They were able to see all parts 
being made and then assembled; organs 
a t various stages of completion were on 

Since this trip was planned to help 
° r gan students understand their instru- 
ments more thoroughly, they were en- 
couraged to ask any questions pertinent 
lo the organ. 

a. Credits necessary for graduation 
will be reduced from 130 to 120 plus 
physical education. 

b. Normal load per semester will be 
reduced from 17 to 16 hours. 

c. No course for general requirements 
can count toward a major. 

d. No minors will be required. 

e. The current student body will con- 
tinue with the present requirements, and 
the incoming class of 1960 will begin 
the new curriculum. 

f. Substitutions will be allowed if a 
major has been changed or if a course 
has been delayed and at the time the 
student is ready to take the course it is 
no longer offered; but substitutions will 
not be allowed in order not to take a 
certain course. 

g. We now have 55 hours of general 
required courses which will be reduced 
to 42 hours. 

h. Music students will be required to 
take a minimum of 42 hours of general 
education plus 18 hours in music theory 
and history. 

i. Religion will be changed to two 
three-hour courses. Two out of the three 
I. S. courses will be required. U. S. 
history will be reduced to a three-hour 
course. Three hours of math will be re- 
quired. Music or art appreciation will 
be required for all students. 

Second Esso Grant 
Valued At $2,500 

The Esso Education Foundation has 
notified Lebanon Valley College that it 
is the recipient of a $2500 grant to be 
used for the remodeling program of the 
Department of Mathematics. This is the 
second grant received for the College 
from the Esso Foundation within the last 

The grant has been made possible 
through the $1,500,000 gift to the Esso 
Education Foundation from the Standard 
Oil Company (New Jersey) on its 75th 
anniversary in support of a special sci- 
ence program. The Jersey Company 
made the contribution to the Fund on 
the premise that the money would be ex- 
pended over a three year period which 
began with the 1957-58 academic year. 
The money is to be used to improve 
teaching in the fields of science and en- 

In announcing the receipt of the $2500 
grant, Dr. Miller expressed deep satis- 
faction with the Foundation's announce- 
ment that this institution is one of fifty- 
four colleges and universities and six spe- 
cial projects in twenty-five states to share 
in the special science grants. 

He also pointed out the recent im- 
provements made to the Department of 
Mathematics and Statistical Laboratories 
on the Lebanon Valley College campus 
under the leadership of Dr. Barnard H. 
Bissinger and noted that a grant such as 
the one received from the Esso Educa- 
tion Foundation will assist greatly in the 
completion of the work already begun in 
this department. 

Alumnus Roop Leaves 
Scholarship Bequest 

The late Emmett C. Roop, a retired 
Philadelphia businessman and alumnus 
of Lebanon Valley College, has left his 
Alma Mater the sum of $5,000, the in- 
come of which is to be used "for the 
assistance of worthy students requiring 
financial help in pursuing their studies 
at Lebanon Valley College." 

A native of Harrisburg, where he grad- 
uated from Old Central High School, 
Mr. Roop also graduated from Lebanon 
Valley in 1903. He spent nearly all of 
his life in the real estate business. He 
died at his home in Camden, New Jer- 
sey, October 13, 1959. 

No scholarship funds will be avail- 
able for at least a year, however, because 
the Finance Committee of the college 
will have to invest the legacy before it 
can be put to use. 

Math Students Will 
Vie For Cash Award 

A fifty-dollar cash prize award will 
be given in the spring to a student with 
superior accomplishments in mathematics 
— algebra, trigonometry, analytic geom- 
etry, calculus, and probability and statis- 
tics. This annual award is granted by 
the Pension Trust Advisory Service Com- 
pany of Harrisburg. 

Competition is open to all students, 
with the hope of encouraging them to 
study actuarial science and to follow a 
career in insurance. 

The Pension Trust Company acts as a 
consultant to industry in insurance and 
pension work. Their interest lies in pro- 
moting interest among young college 
people in this field, to which a knowledge 
of the above-mentioned subjects as well 
as specialized study is necessary. 

An examination covering these types 
of mathematics will be devised and given 
at an appropriate time in the academic 
year. The exam will be compiled and 
corrected by the LVC Mathematics De- 

Pickwell To Play 

Pianist Miss Marcia Pickwell, faculty 
member of the department of music, will 
present a recital in Engle Hall on Thurs- 
day, February 4, at 8:30 p.m. 

One of the highlights of the program 
will be a five-part composition by faculty 
member Thomas Lanese entitled "For 
Young People." Commenting upon an- 
other selection, Brahms' Sonata in f 
minor, Miss Pickwell referred to it as a 
piece "to test the skill, or lack of skill, 
of the pianist." 

Also included in the program will be 
selections from the works of DeBussey, 
J. S. Bach and Schubert. 

Jlabbi Merzog, Jteard 
Jn Chapel Program 

Rabbi Joseph D. Herzog of Temple 
Beth Or in Philadelphia represented the 
Jewish Chautauqua Society as lecturer at 
Lebanon Valley on Tuesday, January 12, 
in the chapel service at 11:00 A.M. 

The rabbi, who spoke on the subject, 
'Judaism— An Optimistic Religion," lec- 
tures on college campuses under the au- 
spices of the Chautauqua Society, an 
organization which seeks to create better 
understanding of Jews and Judaism 
through education. 

Dr. Sara Piel Appointed To Head 
Department of Foreign Languages 

Miss Sara Elizabeth Piel, Ph.D., has been appointed to the post of Professor 
and Chairman of the Department of Foreign Languages. This appointment will 
become effective in the second semester of the current academic year. The position 
which Dr. Piel fills was formerly held by Dr. A. H. M. Stonecipher, who since his 
retirement in 1958 has been serving on the faculty of Lebanon Valley College in an 
emeritus relationship. 

Dr. Piel is the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Henry David Piel, Pittsburgh, 
and is a graduate of Aspinwall High School. She is a graduate of the Pennsylvania 
College for Women (Chatam), and holds the degrees of Master of Arts and Doctor 
of Philosophy from the University of Pittsburgh. She also studied German at the 
Middlebury Summer School. 

Dr. Piel comes to Lebanon Valley 
from the Carnegie Institute of Technol- 
ogy, where she held the post of asso- 
ciate professor of modern languages. Be- 
fore going to Carnegie Tech in 1947, she 
served as instructor in modern lan- 
guages at the Erie Center of the Univer- 
sity of Pittsburgh from 1930 to 1933 
and as instructor, assistant professor, 
and later chairman of the German De- 
partment at Chatam College. 

She has also written for such profes- 
sional journals as "Monatshefte," the 
"German Quarterly," and the "Foreign 
Language Quarterly." 

Lrdman Add resses ri 
Gamma Mu Meeting 

Members of Pi Gamma Mu held their 
monthly meeting on Tuesday, January 
12, at 7:30 in the audio-visual room of 
the library. Mr. Maurice Erdman, chair- 
man of the Industrial Committee of the 
Lebanon County Chamber of Commerce, 
was the speaker. Mr. Erdman is also the 
Director of Industrial Corporations in 
Lebanon and was recently elected to the 
post of Councilman in Lebanon. His 
topic was "Regional Industrial Plan- 

In his talk he dealt with such areas 
as: What the local areas are doing to 
attract new industry; how industry 
looks for a new area; what the state 
is doing to encourage new industry; the 
reserving of industrial parks. 

The committee which prepared this 
program consisted of Donald L. Harper, 
Steven R. Waldman, and Harold O. Mil- 

Riley and Tom Attend 
Economics Convention 

Professors Riley and Tom attended 
the Convention of the American Eco- 
nomic Association and the Allied Social 
Science Associations held in Washing- 
ton, D.C., December 27-30, 1959. The 
Allied Social Science Association in- 
cludes such professional organizations as 
the American Marketing Association, 
Economic Society, Industrial Relations 
Research and others. 

Among the many speakers and partici- 
pants were Arthur F. Burns, President 
of the National Bureau of Economic 
Research and former Chairman of the 
President's Economic Advisory Com- 
mittee, and Robert B. Anderson, Secre- 
tary of the treasury. 

The sessions focused on the broad 
problem of improving the performance 
of the American economy. They dealt 
with some basic issues of economic phil- 
osophy and policy, with problems sur- 
rounding the major objectives of our na- 
tion's economic policy and with means 
of improvement in specific areas of the 

Lieutenant Tiller 
Visits LV Campus 

Woman Marine Lieutenant Peggy L. 
Tiller, women's officer procurement rep- 
resentative for the Fourth Marine Corps 
Reserves and Recruitment District with 
headquarters in Philadelphia, visited the 
LVC campus on Tuesday, January 12, to 
discuss opportunities for college women 
to serve their country in executive posi- 

Lieutenant Tiller, a native of Hope- 
well, Virginia, is a 1958 graduate of the 
Youngstown University and completed 
her Marine training at Quantico, Vir- 
gina, last year. At Youngstown Univer- 
sity the Lieutenant was secretary of the 
student council, editor of the student 
handbook, and was awarded the Youngs- 
town Vindicator Award as the best all- 
around student in her class. She was a 
member of Phi Lamba Delta, Alpha 
Pi Epsilon and Kappa Delta Pi honorary 
education group. She was also a mem- 
ber of the English Society. 

LV Bows To Scranton 

The University of Scranton spoiled 
the Valley four game winning streak in 
coming from behind to defeat LV, 76- 
71. The game was played in the Scran- 
ton Catholic Youth Center on the first 
Saturday of the Christmas vacation. Joe 
Stachnik of Scranton led all scorers with 
a 31 point out-put. Close behind, with 
26 points, Hank Van de Water recorded 
his season high in pacing the LV scorers. 
The Valley held a 5 point half time lead 
but could not hold on to it. Although 
they outscored the opponents in the sec- 
ond half from the floor 12 to 9, Scranton 
had 27 chances at the foul line and made 
good on 20. The Valley was only 4 for 
9 on free tosses.

Peace On Earth? 

All of the songs that are sung about peace and good will among nations were 
sung last month and will now remain silent until next December. Sometimes, 
however, these songs awaken in us a questioning about just what the realization 
of the ideal of peace would involve and what part we can play in promoting it. 

Peace is usually defined as the absence of violence in human relations, and 
in view of the wickedness and ignorance as well as fear which exists, the ideal seems 
to become at most a noble, impractical dream. The goal of nonviolence does imply, 
however, the necessity for passive resistance. This fact haunts the consciences of 
many faced with possible participation in war or other possible contribution to 

This editorial deals not with the question of what to do when one's family 
or wife is attacked by an irresponsible maniac, but what to do when faced with 
the decision of whether or not to participate in government-sanctioned, pre-medi- 
tated massacres of other human beings, either in aggression or in defense. 

For example, every young man is faced with the issue of the compulsory draft, 
a preparation for the possibility of war. The draft remains, perhaps as an inescap- 
able reminder that, as someone once declared, "Man is the only creature which 
preys systematically on his own species." All of us are in person or in our support 
a part of these grim proceedings, or else we claim the right of conscientiously 
objecting, either officially or by refusing to bear arms even though holding member- 
ship in the armed service. These latter stands are not widely respected among 
the public, and the ugly word "coward" is whispered in more than a few military- 
minded circles. However, the observation that men are not afraid to die fighting 
but are afraid to die protecting themselves nonviolently says little for the integrity 
and advancement of man from bestial nature. Admittedly, the goal of peace 
and nonviolence has long been seemingly impossible to attain. Arguments for 
"fighting for the right" are often set forth, some emphasizing that "the right will 
prevail" because, as was echoed during the war, "God is on our side." This conten- 
tion is hardly convincing when we consider that under this assumption, the 
right would prevail even if its representatives used Christian or other nonviolent 

Pacifism does not seem to be a characteristic of human nature. It appears 
to contradict even the basic human drive for self-preservation. Few have chosen 
this way of living by one's reason rather than by brute violence or militarism; few 
have been willing to die without having first sought aggression or revenge in a cause 
in which they believed. Great military "heroes" and soldiers have long been glam- 
ourized. Great pacifists, however, have been revered and in many cases even 
worshipped. It is the conviction of this editor that the day will come, as indeed it 
has already many times, when mankind will look upon his participation in warfares 
and massacres with shame and gross regret, even as he now recalls the horror of the 
crucifix and guillotine. 

Socrates, Christ, Thoreau, and Gandhi Pave Way 

If Socrates was a little too nonresistant in swallowing the hemlock, thereby 
gaining martyrdom for his ideals, later figures such as Christ, Henry Thoreau and 
Mahatma Gandhi were somewhat more practical in their approaches and afford 
more recent examples of the possibilities of civil disobedience and passive resistance 
which have left impressive results in the world. Gandhi's hunger strikes were 
dramatic and often referred to as a kind of political blackmail, yet not only were 
they morally acceptable strategy; they also worked. Thoreau, on the other hand, 
waged a seemingly futile one-man revolt against the uses of American tax money 
when he refused to pay his share to a government engaged in the Mexican War and 
was committed to jail. Little did Thoreau realize then that his principles were later 
to assist in the gaining of independence for India only thirteen years ago. 

The methods used by passive resisters are necessarily extreme, nonconformist, 
and sometimes unlawful. Such measures should be entered into with the utmost of 
conscientious thought and with a sense of conviction based on sound moral 
reasoning. There is no room for the rebel without a cause or the seekers of martyr- 
like glory. To travel the paths taken by Thoreau, Gandhi, or Christ, a man must 
rely upon the highest than is in him. Whether or not a person bases his objections 
to violence on religious grounds, he must recognize the immorality of willful 
annihilation of his fellow human beings, especially when the most that he personally 
has against them is a government order. A person who chooses the way of non-vio- 
lence takes upon himself the dangers of persecution and possible death; chances of 
reward and acclamation except for that of his own personal moral satisfaction are 
slight. Cowardice in the face of these threats can play no part in the thoughts of such 
a man. 

Total disarmament is of course one of the first goals of the pacifist. At man's 
present stage of (un) enlightenment, it is also one of the most unlikely of goals, 
discussed seriously chiefly in ivory towers, among Quakers and their sympathizers] 
and merely echoed controversially in churches and summit meetings. 

How a benevolent deity looks upon the grim Buchenwalds, Pearl Harbors, and 
resultant Arlingtons is the question in the minds of many thoughtful people. But 
if somehow a higher, more divine enlightenment was reached by any or all of the 
exemplary pacifistic men of history mentioned, it is possible that man has been 
pointed by them to a higher, more humane way of dealing with problems with his 
neighbors. (JMK) 

J^etterA to J£a Vie 

Dear Editors of La Vie: 

The "Letters to La Vie" column seems 
to be one of the few places existing in 
our institution to which a person with 
a strong criticism can turn and often 
receive a positive response. It is for this 
reason that I am asking the students 
of Lebanon Valley, through La Vie, to 
hear me out and perhaps support me in 
something which I feel has gone unques- 
tioned far too long. 

I recently had a week-end guest from 
another college on campus to take part 
in our "social life." Let me take you 
through a portion of our week-end at 
LVC. My friend arrived Saturday af- 
ternoon. We had planned to study but 
since he had not arrived until 2:30 P.M. 
there was no future in making use of 
our library for one-half hour as we both 
had research papers to do. Question No. 
1: Why must the library be closed at 
3 o'clock on a Saturday afternoon when 
the week-end is obviously the best time 
for uninterrupted study? 

No TV For The Weary 
After the basketball game a trip to 
the lounge seemed to be in order. The 
time was 10:15 P.M. After having coffee 
in the snack bar we travelled up to the 
lounge to sit before the "big screen." 
The time— 10:40. The lounge— darkened 
and locked. Question No. 2: Why must 
the lounge be closed before it is sched- 
uled to be closed when 11 o'clock is, I 
feel, an unreasonable hour to begin with 
since even freshmen have 12 o'clock per- 
missions Saturday night? Needless to 
say, a car was not available to take us to 
a place which would still be open at the 
"most unreasonable" hour of 10:45 on a 
Saturday night. Going down the list of 
TV sets, we eliminated all but the one 
in the basement of the gym — for reasons 
quite obvious. It was the only other set 
available fcr viewing co-ed style. Upon 
further investigation we found that not 
only was that TV padlocked but that 
the dance (by price of admission only) 
was rather poorly attended and would 
most likely be over in another half hour 
or so. Question No. 3: Could it be that 
our informal after-game dances are usu- 
ally poorly attended because the auxili- 
ary gym resembles Grand Central Sta- 
tion in its lighting scheme and resembles 
an old person's home in its atmosphere? 
Stubborn Door At Green 
We proceeded to travel the well-worn 
path to Green since it, we were sure, 
would not be locked and bolted. But one 
cannot be too sure of these things, as we 
learned upon trying to enter the front 
door. The door seemed to wish it were 
in accord with all its locked brothers 
and sisters. At the cost of appearing 
most critical I prefer to think of this 
as a petty annoyance which could hap- 
pen to anyone, and did just that— to ev- 
ery successive personality who made an 
effort to enter. The parlor of Green has 
many advantages but one of them is not 
that of providing ideal entertainment for 
a Saturday evening. 

On contemplating Sunday's agenda, 
we realized that it would be most un- 
feasible for the male part of our party 
to call at 10 A.M., for his and my time 
would be spent in the cold for lack of 
shelter. Men are not permitted in- 
side the dorms before noon. Since I had 
to use books from the Conserv office, I 
thought perhaps we could use the office 
as a study place. This thought quickly 
passed because, as most people are 
aware, the Conserv is not open until 
1 P.M. 

I could go on but it does not seem 
necessary. I realize we are a church- 
related college which puts considerable 
limitations on us. But I would ask that 
consideration be given to numerous sur- 
rounding church-related colleges. I am 
quite confident the results will show a 
minority with standards more rigid than 
our own and a sizeable majority with 
varying degrees of increased liberality. 

Because of a limit of space, I will not 
go on to cite solutions which I have 
come up with, if they are not already 


Barbara McClean 

The Folly of Passive Resistance 

Why is there war? What is it that drives man to destroy his neighbor, even his 
brother, in combat? Even worse, why does a man annihilate an unknown face, a 
nameless shadow on the battlefront, a man whom he has never met, a man against 
whom he has no grudge but the knowledge that he is the enemy? Why must 
man kill? 

These and many similar questions plague the minds of citizens of every country 
as they feel the pain of their loved ones' deaths in defense of the homeland. It 
is safe to assume that to the large majority of the people, war is a senseless thing,, 
and the killing of another human being is a repulsive proposition. Yet there is war, 
and there will always be war of one sort or another (hot, cold or in-between), and 
to assume that all conflicts can be solved by pacifistic means is as foolish as to 
assume that you can talk a lion out of biting your head off; but more of this in a 
later paragraph. 

Nearly every major conflict in the history of the world has had its roots in 
economic pressures. The American Civil War was not fought over slavery; this was 
a minor symbolic issue. The South seceded (among other reasons) because legisla- 
tion (concerning high protective tariffs, etc.) favorable to northern business interests 
was injuring the Southern staple crop markets and trade overseas. The South was 
outnumbered in government, so they fought back the only way they could. One can 
find nationalistic spirit, emotional fervor and a number of other factors which con- 
tribute to war, yet a nation's fear of being overwhelmed by another, of being cor- 
nered and starved out in the world market, is one of the basic drives which make 
men fight. 

Democracy vs. Communism 

At the present time, the American system of free enterprise is locked in a strug- 
gle with the socialistic Communist government of Soviet Russia. Russia has declared 
its system to be the logical development of world economy, and they are out to 
prove this in any way they can. The question is not whether they are right or wrong; 
the important point is that the leaders of Communism really believe that they are 
right, and they feel we are wrong. 

Anyone can remember unsolved personal arguments in which they felt them- 
selves to be 100% correct and their opponent 100% wrong. Yet the fact that 
neither will give in in such a situation simply proves that the individual sphere of 
each personal existence, one can visualize a dispute only with regard to his own 
background, ideas and best interests. 

In this regard, although humanitarian elements may condemn the brutal tactics 
of the Soviet regime, such methods are necessary for them to achieve their goals; 
their actions are not right or wrong to them, just necessary. A nation threatened 
with domination by another economic system will not hesitate to expand its terri- 
tory, and thus its strength, at the expense of others. 

Man lives by his emotions, and in cases of personal comfort, the average 
human visualizes the end as justifying the means, despite the eloquent essays of 
idealistic scholars to the contrary. It is easy to advocate disarmament and "peace- 
ful" battle in the economic world, in which the country whose system is best will 
just naturaly prevail, yet neither can afford to trust the other to abide by agree- 
ments. What of the nation that finds itself becoming engulfed by a superior system? 
The instinct for survival is strong, and the person who finds himself losing his advan- 
tage on a high plane of combat will resort to a lower plane if he feels it will help 
him win. So far, there is no referee to see that the nations always play by the 

Some nonviolent resisters even go to the extreme of advocating surrender if 
necessary to avoid bloodshed on both sides. They feel it is better to live under a 
different system than to lose their lives in battle. However, cases are rare in which 
a successful aggressor has ever treated the conquered people with equality upon 
occupation. If this is the legacy one has to pass along to his descendants, a status of 
servitude and willful inferiority, he might just as well have died in defence of his 
beliefs, for then he at least did believe in something. Democracy was not built upon 
passive obedience to the whims of a tiny minority. The system may have its faults*, 
but if its advocates do not have active faith in its endurance, it can not endure The 
victor does not pause to consider whether he was right or wrong; he knows he won 
and this mer ely proves his own inner conviction that he was right. (PHR)

Chapel services at Lebanon Valley College have long been a favorite topic for 
discussion and controversy among the students as well as among the faculty This 
constant dissention, praise, or merely idle talk will continue to be present among all 
of us, probably as long as chapel services exist. This is due to the fact that while 
one person may be pleased with the way in which the services are conducted types 
of speakers presented, selection of music, etc., another individual may be highly 
displeased and be obtaining from the hour of worship absolutely nothing-except 
possibly finishing his assignment for the following day. While not all of us can be 
equally pleased at once, we must accept at least outwardly these services, if they meet 
the requirements, standards, and approval of the majority of faculty and student body 
With these few statements in mind let us see what some of the male students L 
Kreider Hall have to say on the subject. These men were selected at random and 
are fairly representative of a large partion of the students as a whole. In following 
issues we hope to increase our cross-section by injecting the feminine viewpoint of 
our girls at Lebanon V alley on this rather redundant topic, our chapel serves.

Dutch Flier 

Fred Meiselman 
Basketball Officiating 

It could be argued that the quality of basketball officiating for the Dutchmen 
home games is considerably below standards. As a matter of fact, concerning 
the opinion of Valley fans, there is no argument as to the quality of the referees. 
In some cases, the mistakes of an official, whether they be often or far between, 
can alter the complexion of a game. Whether or not this has happened in any 
of this season's games involving Lebanon Valley is a matter of individual view- 
point. But at recent LV home games the fans have expressed their ingratitude to- 
ward the seemingly poor officiating that they have witnessed. The whistle-tooters 
have been under pressure by the jeering, booing, and cat-calls of Dutchmen fol- 
lowers who feel that "they was robbed." Just how much does this high-pressuring 
of Valleyites help to improve the services of the officials? 

It is a known fact in basketball circles that when an official whistles a bad 
call against a team, and the referee realizes he has made a mistake, he is subcon- 
sciously on the alert to call a foul or other type violation, no matter how minor it 
may be, on the other team. Most basketball officials will readily confess to this 
short-coming on their part. They are only human. In this respect, it could be 
added that the booing an official encounters from any call, bad or good, serves 
as an incentive for him to establish a block against the team being supported by 
booers. He feels that the fans are against him, and in retaliation, takes revenge 
not against them, but their team. Most players feel that the eagerness of sup- 
porters, in reaching a hatred-pitch against the officials, lessens their chances of 
getting the "breaks" from the calls. 

It is my opinion that Valley basketball fans, for that matter all basketball 
fans, should concentrate their verbal efforts on supporting their team with encour- 
aging cheers rather than with remarks made against officiating. The cheerleaders 
at our games serve in leading cheers to encourage the team, not to discourage the 
officials. I have yet to hear a group of school cheerleaders ring out with a "kill 
the referee" type cheer and I don't think that its effects would be helpful to any 
team being supported nor the school which it represents. I think that we could 
be rabid sport fans without the ill-sounds of denouncements against officials and 
the quality of their work. Although we must agree that in many instances the 
rulings are poorly judged, the job of the official is to call them as he sees them, 
not as the fans wish him to see it. 


Co-captains Barry Skaler and Sam Butz combined for 17 points apiece to 
lead Valley to a 77-73 victory over the Wilkes College five. The Dutchmen put 
on their characteristic second-half spurt after trailing 41-25 at the half. The 52 
point splurge in the second half as compared to 32 for the Colonels enable the 
LV quintet to come from far behind. 


At half time, the Valley held the upper hand with a 43-38 lead, but could 
not contain Scranton's Joe Stachnik, who tallied 31 points. Despite Hank Van de 
Water's 26 point effort, the home team was more fortunate on the foul line in the 
second half, connecting on 20 for 27 attempts. The Dutchmen had only 9 chances 
on the line and converted four of them. Hi Fitzgerald was a bright spot in his 
board work plus 12 points. 


Some of the past LVC stars got together to outscore the Varsity in an 84- 
69 Alumni game. Bob Nelson and Leon Miller combined to score 54 points and 
controlled the boards with 32 rebounds between them. The Philo sponsored 
event was an enjoyable sight for those who remembered some of the court play of 
the participating grads. It seemed that their playing ability was unhampered by 
defeat. Other graduates who contributed to the Friday night festivities were Dick 
Shover, Bill Vought, Bill Deliberty, Ken Shuler, and Jack Peepe. 


In the first of a home and home series, the Flying Dutchmen, in a poor show 
of basketball dropped a 71-59 game to Elizabethtown College. The Blue Jays 
are considered a big rival for LV and it was a disappointing loss. E-town's Barry 
Boyer and Bill Bechtold scored 20 points and 18 points respectively in their win- 
ning effort. Trailing at halftime by a pitiful 33-17 score, the Valley managed 
to rack up 42 points in the final half, but not enough to stop the visitors. Sam 
Butz, with 16 points, was high man for the Valley. 


In a repeat of last Saturday night's performance, LVC came from behind with 
a 40-22 halftime deficit to outscore the Upsala Vikings 37-27, but this still wasn't 
enough to overcome their poor first half. Upsala won 67-59 to put the Valley in 
the "500 bracket" with a 5-5 record. Bob Cumiskey was unstoppable from the 
floor and racked up 12 field goals for 24 points. Hi Fitzgerald, with 21 points was 
high for the Valley and his rebounding was also commendable. 


In looking at our box scores and by seeing the last few gamqs, it seems that 
the only fault the Valley suffers is the inability to score in the first half. But 
after they usually come back strong in the second, one wonders if they are really 
such a poor team. The quality of basketball that they have played in the second 
half against such teams as Washington, Wilkes, Elizabethtown, and Upsala are 
indicative of the fine play they are capable of. If they could only start off the 
game with that kind of aggressiveness and hustle, we see no reason why they 
shouldn't win the majority of the remaining games.

interesting people with a basic insight 
into many of our own everyday prob- 
lems." Bela Takacs. 

"I like chapel as a whole. Music does 
not always mean a lot to me as an indi- 
vidual. I fail to see a great need of a 
devotional part all of the time, especially 
when the main body of the service is of 
a secular nature. Devotions are good 
when the whole program is of a reli- 
gious nature. Speakers are very well 
chosen. There is no possible way to ob- 
tain better speakers due to the fact that 
we are a small college. Many speakers, 
it is true, don't offer as much as others, 
but I can learn something from all of 
them." Chuck Arnett. 

"I enjoy the music part of every cha- 
pel program best. In my opinion chapel 
definitely should not be required, be- 
cause religious activities should be com- 
pletely voluntary for each individual. Re- 
ligion is a personal thing and should not 
be forced. Restriction as to what the 
organist plays before and after the service 
should be up to the organists' good taste, 
and should not be guided by the whims 
)f a few professors." Nolan Miller. 

"The choice in chapel as to speakers: 
we have had a varying background of 
religious speakers, and the choices made 
have been wise. In some cases, however, 
the presentation has been boring. This 
we all realize and know. Yet this cannot 
be avoided unless we would pay high 
prices for high speakers. My main ap- 
prehension is due to the fact that chapel 
is run on a compulsory basis. I believe 
that if a student has a valid excuse he 
should be excused, rather than have him 
or her spend time in a social hour. In 

Lebanon Valley Overtakes 
Wilkes In Second Half 

In their first game of the Christmas holiday tour, the Flying Dutchmen defeated 
Wilkes College, 77-73 in a "come-from-behind" thriller. Trailing at halftime by 
16 points, LV poured in 52 points in the last half. Sam Butz, Barry Skaler, and 
Glen Coates paced the second half point barrage with 33 points between them, 
Butz accounting for 14 of his game total of 17 points. 

Although Wilkes outscored the Valley in field goals, 28 to 20, the Dutchmen 
converted 37 foul shots in 48 tries as compared to 17 free throws for the home 
team. Bill Radecki, Wilkes forward, led all scorers with 21 points. Sam Butz 
and Barry Skaler each scored 17 points for the Valley; Goncalves contributed 13 
and Van de Water 12.

short I don't believe that religion can be 
a forced issue." Rick Vespe. 

"I enjoy the type of chapel services 
which are given mainly during Religious 
Emphasis Week or the type of service in 
which the Rabbi spoke about Judaism 
(Jan. 11, 1960). I like to hear different 
speakers on different aspects of religion 
— not only ours but especially others. 
By this method I can get to know more 
about the living religions of the world 
today. In my opinion we should have 
something different from a regular Sun- 
iay service, while still keeping it in a 
worshipful atmosphere." William Karl 

"It would be a good idea if chapel 
wasn't mandatory. Also it could be im- 
proved by speakers with more appeal to 
the student body as a whole, possibly 
speaking on a subject other than religion 
once in a while. As chapel stands now, 
in my opinion, many times it is merely a 
place to go on Tuesday, and not as it 
should be — a voluntary worthwhile hour 
of worship and meditation." Walter Z. 

"Many times I don't feel like going to 
chapel service, but once I am there I feel 
that I may as well be there. I like the 
message mostly when it is good, but this 
is only about one out of five." Kenneth

island and must travel on a limited bud- 
get, could you suggest a minimum all- 
purpose wardrobe?

Dear Be 'nice: 

For this exciting trip you will need 
lightweight ensembles for your holiday 
in the sunny, balmy tropics. However, 
until you reach the Caribbean vacation 
paradise, you will want warm, snug out- 
fits for strolls on the blustery, storm- 
tossed deck. Why not take along one of 
your full-length, fur-lined, cashmere 
coats? A few basic tweeds, two dressy 
wools, and several casual cocktail dresses 
will adequately fill out your wardrobe 
until you arrive in the sunny tropics. For

Dear Miss Snerdgrass, 

From what I know of gym togs, you 
are indeed fortunate to be living in our 
modern-day-world when such attire is 
designed to the peak of fashion in the 
newest, most exciting shades of royal 
blue. However, I realize that some rhine- 
stones in the appropriate places will do 
wonders in creating that gala look which 
you are striving for. Ask your teacher if 
she minds if you sew a few sequins 
here and there on the lapel of your 

blouse. If it would be possible to shir the 
bodice, do so by all means, adding sev- 
eral rows of rickrack or pin tucks, which- 
ever you prefer, to the waistband. 
Crowned by your flower-adorned dink,

Dear Cynthia, 

Last week as the maid was cleaning 
out one of the closets in my boudoir, 
she came across a large bit of periwinkle 
wool. Have you any suggestions as to 
how I may utilize this? I have also a 
lovely pair of rhinestone-bedecked walk- 
ing shoes of fuchsia. Could these be 
used to advantage? Please print a speedy 
answer, for I am at a loss as to what to 
wear for my daughter's wedding which 
will occur in March. 

Abigail Van Horn 


By all means utilize both your peri- 
winkle wool and your too divine fuchsia 
shoes. I suggest that you co-ordinate 
these for a utilization effect. Cut the bit 
of periwinkle wool into twelve-inch 
squares, carefully hem the edges, and 
employ these periodically to polish your 
fuchsia clogs. Then dash on over to 
your nearest Saks Fifth Avenue and find 
a fetching number in sheer Logan green. 
This will nicely complement your gleam- 
ing shoes for that big event in March. 


Dear Editors of La Vie: 

I would like to depart from my usual 
harangue on "objective thinking" to con- 
gratulate (yes, I said congratulate) a 
"subversive" group on campus which pull- 
ed a tremendous job of noise-making at 
6 A.M. on the morning of Saturday, 
January 9th. It seems people in the Men's 
Dorm were "all shook up" and not a 
few of them were literally up in arms 
over the whole business. 

Just a reminder, fellows — for the past 
three years, various girls' dorms on cam- 
pus have been subjected from time to 
time (especially on evenings before vac- 
tions) to various uninvited singing (?), 
yodeling and floor-show tactics at all 
hours of the night ranging from mid- 
night to 4 A.M. The girls have very 
nicely taken all this with a grain of salt, 
and never said anything. But now the 
girls have decided to give the guys a taste 
of their own medicine, and, from all re- 
ports, the mission was quite successful. 

This is in answer to those people who 
are repeatedly deploring the fact hat 
"nothing ever happens on this campus." 
And you must admit, Kreider Hall, that 
it was only "just retribution." 


Wig and Buckle Completes 
Active Dramatic Semester 

With the close of the present semester, Wig and Buckle, LVC's dramatic so- 
ciety, will have presented three one-act plays and four television shows since school 
began in September. This has been the most active semester in recent years for 
this group. In addition to this several members of the club made a trip to the 
Harrisburg Community Theatre on November 20 to see a performance of "The 
Rainmaker" and this Friday evening will again go to Harrisburg to see "The Diary 
of Anne Frank." Three more such trips are planned for next semester to see the 
comedy "Auntie Mame," in February, a performance of Shakespeare's "The Taming 
of the Shrew" in March, the production of which will mark the two-hundredth 
production of the Harrisburg Community Theatre and the first major attempt to 
present Shakespeare in the city, and an unannounced comedy in May. 

The one-act plays were Thornton Wilder's "The Happy Journey," Jean 
Giraudoux's "The Apollo of Bellac," and Edna St. Vincent Millay's "Aria da 
Capo," all three of which were presented in Three for the Show on October 23 and 
24 (LV Day). Following the production of these plays Wig and Buckle went on 
to present a shortened version of "Aria da Capo" over WLYH-TV, Lebanon, as 
one program in the series of programs titled "The World and the Theatre," pre- 
sented by the LVC English Dept. under the direction of Dr. George Struble, head 
of the department, over this channel at 9:30 P.M. every Tuesday evening. Also 
as part of this series Wig and Buckle presented selected readings from Jean Anouihl's 
"Antigone," Moliere's "The Would-Be Invalid," and "Gammer Gerten's Needle." 

Having begun plans this semester to join the national dramatic fraternity 
Alpha Psi Omega, the club hopes to have final approval of this move in the near 
future so that it can become officially affiliated with thk national organization 
sometime during the second semester. 

Looking toward several possible opportunities for activity in the second semes- 
ter, the club will start off with a party on February 1 from 8 to 12 in the auxiliary 
gym at which the club members will provide various types of entertainment for 
each other in the way of short acts, skits, dramatic readings, record pantomimes, 
and whatever else the members think up along these lines. The traditional char- 
ades will also be played as part of the evening's program. 

Membership in the club is open to all students at any time, and everyone 
is cordially invited to attend the meetings, held the first and third Tuesdays of the 
month at 7:00 P.M. in room B-2 of the Administration Building.

sung in churches, while the others will 
take place in various schools. Highlighting 
the choir's presentations will be the Feb- 
ruary 25 concert in Engle Hall following 
the tour. This concert will be sponsored 
by the Women's Auxiliary of the college. 

The program for the concert will in- 
clude compositions by Bach, Brahms, 
Mozart, Hilbach, Poulenc, Handel, 
Freed, and Korsakov. There will also be 
a group of folk numbers. 

Soloists will be Bonnie Jean Fix, San- 
dra Stetler, and Mary Metzger, sopra- 
nos; Sylvia Bucher, alto; Ronald Dietz, 
tenor; and Kenneth Hays, bass. Barbara 
McClean, pianist, and a small instru- 
mental ensemble will accompany the 

Two concerts each will be sung in 
Hagerstown, Maryland, Carlisle, and 
Schuylkill Haven. Other concerts are 
scheduled for Shippensburg, New Hol- 
land, York, Red Lion, Baltimore and 

Committee To Form 
Special Chapel Choir 

A faculty committee has been created 
for the purpose of organizing a special 
chapel choir to assume the functions the 
Concert Choir performs now. 

This choir is planned to include all 
college students instead of just music 
majors, and Concert Choir members will 
not be eligible for membership, due to 
other demands upon their time. 

The choir, to be directed by Mr. 
Pierce Getz, would hold weekly rehear- 
sals. It is believed that such a specially 
prepared group could lend a more fitting 
atmosphere to the services, according to 
the type of program being presented. 

The committee, headed by Mr. Smith, 
includes Dean Kreitzer and Dr. Bemes- 
derfer in addition to Mr. Getz.

mencement proceedings. 

The degrees awarded were the bache- 
lor of arts to William Frank DeLiberty, 
Rutherford Heights, Leo John Savastio, 
Hummelstown, and Mark Jay Schaeffer, 
Pittsburgh; the bachelor of science de- 
gree with a major in elementary educa- 
tion to Wanda Ness Crane, York, Brenda

Schmidt, Schwenksville; and with a ma- 
jor in science to George Edward Fill- 
more, Jr., Camp Hill. 

The January commencement is one of 
three such programs conducted through- 
out the college year. The regular spring 
commencement is scheduled for Sunday, 
June 5, while a third is scheduled for 
the end of the summer school sessions. 


Mrs. Polly Cuthbertson and Mr. Remund Sandman, YW-YMCA representatives 
who visited LVC in order to evaluate the function of the SCA on the campus, 
presented their findings and recommendations to a group of students representing 
various campus organizations on February 4 at 7:15 in the Administration 

Mr. Sandman said that the SCA had been objectively observed in the light 
of certain general standards which a well-functioning SCA usually meets, those 
being that the association should be a lay, non-sectarian, non-credal fellowship with 
an ecumenical orientation and should foster a searching, informative attitude 
among the students in order to educate them for making intelligent and satisfying 

choices of religious experience. 

Three Attend Church 
Vocations Conference 

Mary Jane Fogal, Sheila Taynton, and 
Miriam Wiker will attend the Confer- 
ence on Church Vocations for College 
Women. This conference will take place 
at the Union Theological Seminary in 
New York City, Friday, February 12, to 
Sunday, February 14. 

The purpose of this event is to assist 
college women who are not fully decided 
a bout a church vocation, or who are en- 
tering a church vocation, but have not 
definitely chosen the specific area of 

Dr. Reinhold Neibuhr and Mrs. Theo- 
dore O. Wedel are two of the speakers 
t0r this affair. 

Mrs. Cuthbertson pointed out that the 
main areas of the SCA which had been 
explored through interviews with stu- 
dents, administration, and faculty con- 
cerning all areas of the campus pertained 
to five main fields: purpose, membership, 
leadership, programming, and role of 
faculty and administration. She then 
elaborated on the strong points as well 
as the limitations and weaknesses of the 
SCA in these areas. A brief recapitula- 
tion of her report brings out the follow- 
ing findings: 

Service Projects Appreciated 
The consensus of campus opinion 
showed sincere appreciation of the many 
service projects and activities sponsored 
and supported by the SCA. Suggestions 
were made that the function of the SCA

College Lounge To 
Remain Open Until 
12 p.m. On Weekends 

In response to student requests there 
will be a change in the evening hours of 
the Carnegie Lounge. The new hours 
will affect, for the most part, the week- 
end. The lounge will be open from 8:30 
until 12 on Friday and Saturday even- 

This is in contrast to the present hours 
of 7 P.M. to 10:30 on Friday and 7 P.M. 
to 11 on Saturday. The lounge will be 
open on Sunday through Thursday from 
7 P.M. until 10. The new hours will 
go into effect beginning Friday, Febru- 
ary 12, and will continue for one month 
on a trial basis. 

The hours will in no way affect the 
hours of the Snack Bar. There are many 
students who feel that they would like to 
stop in at the lounge toward the end of 
the evening. It will now be possible to 
do this. 

It is hoped that with the new hours 
will come an increased use of the lounge 
by the students. 

The Lynch Memorial Physical Education Building at Lebanon Valley has been 
chosen as the site of the Middle Atlantic States College Athletic Conference Wrest- 
| ling Championships to be held on March 4 and 5. Ellis R. McCracken, LVC's 
director of athletics, has been named the chairman of the games committee, which 
also includes Paul Kuklentz of Moravian College and Charles Ream representing 

Muhlenberg. * 

In addition to the games committee, 
Lebanon Valley, as host, has appointed 
two other committees. The general com- 
mittee, which Mr. McCracken also heads 
along with the Reverend Bruce C. Sou- 
ders, is in charge of publicity. Coach 
Charles Poad, another member of this 
committee, will supervise acocmmoda- 
tions and meet plans, and Mr. Wayne 
Strasbaugh, newly-appointed director of 
development, is in charge of meet opera- 
tions and the public address system. 

The championships will be divided in- 
to three sessions, the first on Friday, 
March 4, at 6:00 p.m. and the last two 
on Saturday, March 5, at 1:00 p.m. and 
7:30 p.m. Friday's meet will be devoted 
to 75 preliminary matches that will serve 
to narrow down the field of competitors, 
while the Saturday afternoon bouts will 
constitute the quarter and semi-finals. 
Saturday night's program will climax the 
championships with 16 final and consola- 
tion matches. 

Twenty-two colleges and universities 
have entered the competition: Albright 
College, Bucknell University, Delaware 
University, Dickinson College, Drexel 
Tech, Elizabethtown College, Gettysburg 
College, Hofstra College, Johns Hopkins

To Award Scholarships 
To Eleven Winners 
In Competitive Exams 

Three full-tuition and eight half-tui- 
tion scholarships will be offered to the 
winners of the competitive examinations 
to be held on the Lebanon Valley cam- j 
pus Saturday, February 27. 

High school seniors in the upper third 
of their classes are eligible to take the j 
competitive examinations. All students 
will take prescribed examinations and an 
elective examination in one of the fol- 
lowing subjects: biology, chemistry, Eng- 
lish, French, German, Latin, history, 
Spanish, mathematics, music, physics, 
political science, or sociology. 

The scholarship winners will have the 
benefit of the scholarships for four 
years at Lebanon Valley College, provid- 
ed that they maintain a satisfactory aca- 
demic average. The scholarships can 
be applied to study toward any one of 
five degrees offered by the college: bache- 
lor of arts, bachelor of science, bachelor 
of science in chemistry, bachelor of sci- 
ence in nursing, and bachelor of science 
in medical technology. 

Debating Club M eets 

The newly-organized Debating Club at 
Lebanon Valley met for the first time 
on February 4 in Philo Hall with its 
adviser, Mr. Matlack. 

The group came into being prompted 
by the feeling on the part of its organiz- 
ers that debating is a skill lacking on the 
campus. The club plans to learn the fun- 
damentals of debate, go on field trips, 
participate in an annual speech day, hold 
inter- and intra-campus debates, and pro- 
mote panel discussions. 

A debate on the merits versus the dis- 
advantages of the loyalty oath was the 
first activity of the club and took place 
Thursday, February 11, in the basement 
of the student lounge. Harry Vander- 
bach moderated at this debate with How- 
ard Miller, William Baker, and William 
Sheehy included in the participants. 

DeHart, College Share Sears Award 

Mr. R. D. Anderson, manager of the Lebanon store of the Sears-Roebuck 
Company, presented Dr. Miller with a check for $750 in honor of Darlene DeHart 
at a special luncheon in the President's Dining Hall on Monday, February 1. 

A freshman majoring in economics and business administration, Darlene 
is a National Merit Scholarship winner. The Sears Foundation is her sponsor and 
annually gives her a scholarship aid and the college a foundation gift in her honor. 

Left to right in the picture are Mr. Anderson, Miss DeHart, Dr. Miller, and 
Mr. Wayne V. Strasbaugh, Director of Development at Lebanon Valley College. 

Dr. Sara Piel, newly appointed head 
of the department of foreign language, 
comes to Lebanon Valley from the Car- 
negie Institute of Technology. Dr. Piel 
is a graduate of Chatam College and has 
also studied at the University of Pitts- 
burgh and Middlebury Summer School. 

Joseph May Receives 
Subscription Award 

Joseph Ballard May, a senior in the 
department of Economics and Business 
Administration, has been named recipi- 
ent of a year's subscription to the Na- 
tional Association of Accountants' Bulle- 
tin awarded by the Harrisburg chapter of 
the NAA to an LVC student for demon- 
strated achievement in accounting. 

This is the first year such an award 
has been made by this organization. It 
coincides with its newly established Stu- 
dent Bulletin Service, created in response 
to requests of accounting instructors that 
student subscriptions be made available 
to this technical publication. 

Professor Robert C. Riley, chairman 
of the economics department and imme- 
diate past-president of the Harrisburg 
chapter, is currently serving as National 
Director of the NAA.

Adviser Rev. Bruce C. Souders 


It is the happy privilege of the editors to report that the current widespread 
rumor that one-fourth of the student body has been placed on academic proba- 
tion is a gross error, according to Dean Kreitzer. Actually, only 75 out of 659 
students, or approximately eleven percent of the campus, can be so classified. 
Fifteen students were removed from probation. In comparison, at the close of 
the previous semester which ended in June, 1959, 50 Valleyites were on probation, 
while sixteen were removed from the listings of below-C averages. 

Dean Kreitzer has stated that although the probation list is slightly longer 
than usual, there are reasons for it, most of which can be attributed to the stu- 
dents in question not putting forth their best efforts. There are, he also men- 
tioned, some freshmen who are having difficulty making the adjustment from high 
school to college work. He pointed out that the faculty stands ready and willing 
to assist students who are in need of counsel and help with their courses, but the 
student must take the initiative, showing a real interest in his work and helping 
his advisors and instructors to understand his specific problems. The Dean felt 
that in too many cases the students' records were not as good as they could have 
been, had the students attended classes regularly, with a minimum of cuts. 

Perhaps another reason for the increase in academic difficulties is the more 
uniform application of stiffer grading standards which the faculty has begun. Be- 
sides, competition at all schools, not only at LVC, is increasingly keener and this 
fact is bound to take its toll when semester grades are tallied. 

High standards will continue and will reach a degree of fulfillment in the 
new curriculum outlined in the last (January 14) issue of La Vie, to take effect 
next September. The new curriculum requirements, although their implications 
may upon first consideration seem controversial and perhaps unfavorable in 
several aspects, take on clarity and student-oriented purpose when fully under- 

Dean Explains Advantages of Changes 

"The new requirements," said Dean Kreitzer, "provide a greater portion of 
general education (60 hours) for all students. It will also allow for greater con- 
centration in the major field." The regulations for a minor field have been dropped, 
making additional credit hours possible in a student's major subject. As a result, 
it is evident that the new program places more responsibility with the student; he 
will have to choose his electives (replacing the original requirements for a minor) 
wisely if he wishes to be a well-rounded graduate. The fact, sometimes looked upon 
unfavorably because it is misunderstood, that required subjects cannot count to- 
ward a major is actually made up for by the decrease in required courses. The 
former 55 hours of required material has been diminished to only 42. 

The changes which have come about are not completely original with LVC, 
but were prompted by new state requirements to go into effect beginning in 1963. 
From that year on, 24 hours of a subject will be needed in order to obtain certifica- 
tion to teach that subject in Pennsylvania (as well as in a considerable number of 
other states). Prospective teachers now in college, including freshmen, will not 
be subject to this regulation. Upon graduation they will be permanently certified 
to teach on the basis of their achievements under the present system. 

The changes at LVC are not unlike changes being made at surrounding col- 
leges, although all schools have not discontinued the minor. However, most recog- 
nize the value of the provision for a required course in music or art appreciation. 

Because of the innovations, there is the possibility that eventually a five-year 
college program will have to be established in order to most effectively deal with 
the new curriculum. No steps have been taken at present in this direction, but the 
matter is being studied and will be decided upon in the light of its value to the 
student's preparation for doing the best possible job in his future profession.

Senator Scott Urges Repeal 
Of Non-Communist Affidavit 
For Students Receiving US Aid 

(AP) U.S. Senator Hugh Scott (R.-Pa.) in an address at the Founder's Day Con- 
vocation of the Philadelphia College of Ooteopathy on January 23, stated that he will 
support the move to repeal the non-Communist affidavit now required of students 
receiving certain Federal loans because "it casts suspicion on students." Further 
excerpts from the senator's remarks follow. 

"The National Defense Education Act, which I supported in 1958 because it 
provides important aid to education, contains one unfortunate provision. It requires 
that a student who receives a Federal loan sign an affidavit that he does not believe 
in or belong to any organization that teaches the illegal overthrow of the govern-

Commendations are in order for cam- 
pus organizations and individuals who in 
recent weeks have sought to improve ex- 
isting campus weaknesses in a construct- 
ively critical manner. Such interest and 
action shows that apathy, if not on the 
wane, is at least not manifested in all 
parts of the campus. La Vie recognizes 
and appreciates the thought and research 
which obviously precede the writing of 
many letters to the editors. Furthermore, 
the fact that students, faculty, and ad- 
ministration are sensitev to the opinions 
voiced in this way and are willing to 
consider them objectively is indicative of 
the healthy beat of the campus pulse. 

The editors have been approached by 
students and faculty who offer suggest- 
ions for additions to La Vie; these ideas 
are welcomed and many times acted up- 
on. The offering of such suggestions is 
significant, indicating active interest in 
communication through the newspaper of 
contributions from many segments of the 

Along with the remodeling of the en- 
tire curriculum has come a number of 
other self-examinations by LVC organi- 
zations. The SCA evaluation is a recent 
example of a worthwhile attempt at self- 
improvement; representatives of nearly 
all campus groups were able to express 
their appreciation as well as their criti- 
cisms for the job the SCA does in serv- 
ing the campus' needs. The Political Sci- 
ence Club also, in preparation for the 
Intercollegiate Conference on Govern- 
ment to be held this spring, is re-exam- 
ining its programs and objectives and is 
initiating new projects. The Senate, hav- 
ing set up a Rules Committee, is in the 
process of revamping its regulations. 

This frank examining and discussing 
of issues through acceptable channels is 
probably the most honest and effective 
way to achieve desired results. It is un- 
doubtedly better than aimless complain- 
ing or foolish and extreme methods of 
expressing disaproval. The editors feel 
that such an awakening to ideals and 
purposes which has taken place recently 
is worthy of praise; that this trend con- 
tinue as a vital campus asset is the hope 
of many. 

La Vie is fortunate to have the privi- 
lege of announcing and commenting up- 
on these changes and opinions; as before, 
we shall seek to maintain the function of 
being available as an "acceptable chan- 
nel" for expression. (JMK). 

J^etterA to J£a Vie 

Dear Editors of La Vie: 

I agree completely with the issues 
voiced by Barbara McClean in her letter 
to the La Vie of January 14, 1960. 

I feel one of the reasons why the 
dances are so poorly attended after the 
basketball games is the fact that they are 
not set up soon enough. Students start 
to assemble immediately after the game. 
It is very discouraging to be welcomed 
by a dark gym upon arrival. I feel set- 
ting up the dance a few minutes before 
the game is over would prove beneficial. 

I know many students like to dance. 
I have seen many groups go away be- 
cause the few people present happened 
to be in couples. Students on this cam- 
pus must also help in making the social 
life. The organizations can set it up, 
but the students must give it vitality. 
These dances are for everyone, stag or 
drag. Since it is one of the few places 
students can go to socialize, they should 
make the most of it. 


Doris Kohl 

Social Snafu 

In the last issue of La Vie there appeared a letter from sophomore Barbara 
McClean which leveled a fifteen-inch column's worth of criticism at various aspects 
of an all-too-typical Saturday night at Valley. La Vie admires Miss McClean 
for her courage, and appreciates her clear, polite way of airing this ever-present 
problem, yet this editor notes with disgust that only one letter (see column left) 
was received at this office either in support of her position or in defense of con- 
ditions as they exist. Apathy seems to be a disease peculiar to many of our students. 

La Vie Collegienne is constantly striving to become the voice of Valley's stu- 
dent population, not only in the reporting of its news events, but also in the ex- 
pression of its views on the editorial page, views which represent campus opinion 
primarily, not mainly faculty or administrative ideas concerning what they feel 
our problems must be. To function adequately in this capacity, it is granted and 
maintains the freedom to print publicly, within the realm of good taste, all logical 
and carefully considered criticisms of itself, the college, or any of its functions. 

In the following lines, La Vie hopes to take up where Barbara left off, seizing 
upon one small segment of her letter which reveals the symptoms of Valley's 
problems, in an attempt to level blame where it belongs. Believing that Valley's 
men and women have reached a maturity of thought compatible with contemporary 
social standards, this editor feels that LVC can be brought up to date. It is up 
to the students to make themselves heard. The student with a cause in which he 
believes can bring about the most radical change if he will only put forth enough 
effort to get others to listen. 

Social Situation Defective 

With these views in mind, let it be said that the social situation at Lebanon 
Valley, while vastly improved since this author was a freshman, is still in its 
structure and purposes outmoded when compared to other schools (church sup- 
ported institutions included). It is no secret that Valley cannot afford, neither 
does it desire, to offend those in the Evangelical United Brethren Church who so 
generously endow this college and aid many of its students. Neither can this 
college, or any college, successfully impose upon its students regulations which run 
contrary to a mature person's idea of a good time. 

Just one example of this is the brevity of the special permissions granted to 
Valley's women for social functions, especially off-campus affairs such as the 
Conserv formal (Letters, La Vie, December 17, 1959). Equally irritating is the 
regulation which states that one must remain at a given function until the end in 
order to utilize these specials. Forced clock-watching takes the fun out of any 
dance or party. The majority of the campus population deserves greater freedom 
in these areas within which to exercise its own concept of proper behavior. // a 
person is going to conduct him or herself in an improper manner, he will pay no 
heed to overly strict rules anyway. 

There is another side of the coin. Students at Valley must realize that our social 
affairs will continue to decline in popularity unless they are fun for all who at- 
tend. At recent post-game dances, the only persons to attend came in couples 
and seldom merged even for group conversation. At the beginning of the year, 
both male and female stags attended these dances; the former gathered in a nice, 
tight circle by the door and the latter sat invitingly along the walls, talking to 
each other. The status quo was usually maintained the entire evening. The now- 
defunct frammises which were held in the College Lounge were a brave and imagi- 
native attempt to provide group fun, but some unspoken law of segregation of the 
sexes prevailed again, and the frammis became merely a showcase for Terry De- 
Wald's excellent group of musicians. The effect was, to quote Miss McClean, 
like "an old person's home in its atmosphere." 

Even Beatniks Fared Badly 

SCA's bohemian party was another fine attempt at something new in group 
affairs. With young professors to bring a truly informal atmosphere in the 
chaperone department and various imaginative bits of entertainment provided by 
several students, the party could have started a trend. But once again, the sexes 
(save for the ever-present, familiar couples) avoided each other much of the 
time, with only a poker game bringing some together. 

All this leads one to believe that the men at Valley are either afraid to ap- 
proach a girl on social grounds or won't lower themselves to strike up an acquaint- 
ance with any but girls with Mansfield-like charms. In addition, any young lady 
who is so foolish as to date any young man twice in a row must despair of re- 
ceiving the attentions of any other for many months, since she is undoubtedly "go- 
ing steady." 

The fall term of 1959 saw many fresh attempts on the part of our campus 
organizations to inject a spark of life in Valley's ailing social setup. This enthusi- 
astic drive endured about two months before the previous deadly routine returned. 
Once again we have dances in "Grand Central Station" and a dozen arm-in-arm 
couples are the only ones to patronize these affairs (since they have to have 
something to do). The solution lies with the students as well as in a reorganiza- 
tion of our rules and regulations upon more realistic lines. Our organizations 
should receive gold stars for doing their best. The students will receive a finer 
social atmosphere for their future efforts if they really want it. (PHR)

In this edition we look to the ladies for 
their viewpoint. 

Shirley Angle: "More interesting and 
varied speakers, not just religious or aca- 
demic people, are needed to make the 
programs seem more worthwhile. The 
music which we now have is, on the 
whole, pretty good. Perhaps more stu-

Jan Hammerschmidt and Joyce Fuller: 
"The condescending air which occasion-

is resented by the students. More varied 
speakers are needed, more representa- 
tives from many faiths." 

Pat Leader: "I feel that there should 
be greater diversification of speakers. For 
instance, in my freshmen year (1956-57) 
we had some very good ones. Of course 
I feel that chapel should be non-compul- 

Polly Fitz: "For myself I don't mind 
compulsory chapel. Perhaps, however, 
there would be different response in stu- 
dent attitude if it were non-compulsory. 
There can never be a speaker to please 
everyone. Students should improve their 
pre-chapel attitude. Student participation 
in the programs adds more interest. I 
think that we have excellent music." 

Phyllis Cotter: "There should be a 
greater variety of speakers. It seems silly 
to have the Concert Choir up front just 
to sing with the audience. The Choir 
should sing more anthems. Student parti- 
cipation would make the services better, 
I think. It should really be determined 
first of all whether chapel services should 
be religious. I think it would be neat if 
we could have people from different 
fields of life. This might even help peo- 
ple decide on their vocations." 

Carol Yoder: "In the first place I 
don't think that chapel attendance should 
be compulsory, but rather a matter of 
one's own volition. The best speaker that 
we had this year was Rabbi Herzog be- 
cause he was someone different. We 
should have more variety in speakers. 
They don't have to be from the same 
religion or even from the religious field 
at all. There is enough student participa- 
tion, and the music is good." 

Joanne Freed, Liz Gluyas, Carol 
Smith: "Twenty-minute chapels in which 
the professors speak seems like a good 
idea. That's the policy at Gettysburg.

very bad or very good. We need to hit a

time. Concerning music, I think vocalists 
will command more attention and get a 
message across better than instrumental 
music. Of course, the question of what 
to sing comes up, but I believe that songs 
from different religions can be worked in. 
We should have students from many 
fields participating every week, with the 
chaplain or administration presiding only 
on special occasions." 

Get An Education? I'd 
Rather Make Money! 

(ACP) — From a column in the EM- 
ORY WHEEL of Emory University, At- 
lanta, comes this look at education in the 
United States: 

"Perhaps, if in the midst of our pres- 
ent wave of capitalist materialism, Amer- 
icans value a new car or a television 
more than an education, there is some- 
thing wrong with education. After all, 
if it won't sell, what good is it? And 
judging from what our teachers make, 
whatever they're offering isn't going over 
t( x> well in America. 

"Maybe what we need to sell educa- 
tl0n is a good Madison Avenue approach. 
After some motivational research work, 
y°u may see magazine ads like this: 

'For quick, safe, medically-approved 
f e bef from the discomforts of TV watch- 
uig, try reading!' Or, 'Men of distinction 
read Shakespeare!' Perhaps we might 
CVen be able to make education a status 
symbol (as it already is in more civilized 
c °untries). 

Actually, education seems to be a 
retty suspicious thing anyway, if not 
^uipletely subversive. After all, if the 

ssians are so enthusiastic about

For some time there has been a recog- 
nized need for a better communications 
system between students and faculty on 
this campus. There is a definite lack 
of cooperation and understanding be- 
tween these two bodies. Since the Student 
Faculty Council does not seem to be 
furthering this need, someone or some 
group must try to rectify this state of 

Take the recent complaints about the 
library hours. The student body wanted 
the library open later on Saturday af- 
ternoon. This was the statement — or de- 
mand. The President answered this de- 
mand with an urging that the students 
use the present time allotted more ef- 
fectively. It is true that the library is 
now used for the purpose for which the 
lounge was built. If the student body has 
any reasonable solutions in this matter, 
they should be presented to the adminis- 
tration. But where can we go to be heard 
out so that an answer can be reached? 

Recently interest has been raised per- 
taining to President Miller and his con- 
tact with the student body. The dire need 
we have for better communications and 
a cooperative college family could be 
furthered here. 

We realize that Dr. Miller has 
the hardest and most important job 
in the college community. The Presi- 
dent not only has to see that col- 
lege affairs are run on schedule and 
run properly, but he also has the task of 
raising money in order to provide a bet- 
ter academic life for the students. In view 
of Dr. Miller's methodical schedule and 
the necessity of putting first things first, 
it would still be gratifying to have a bet- 
ter student contact with him. During his 
undergraduate studies, President Miller 
was a top-notch basketball player for the 
Valley. The Quittapahilla published in 
the year he graduated will bear this out. 
If it would be possible for President 
Miller to attend one or two of the 
Valley's home basketball games, it would 
definitely be a step toward a better ap- 
preciation of our faculty and a more co- 
herent student-faculty relationship. 

Of course, not everything the students 
ask for is good; but measures pertaining 
directly to the students should be consid- 
ered by men who can step down 
from their administrative posts and put 
themselves in the students' position. 

We want to see this college become a 
proving ground for student leadership. 
We want to see students leave the school 
with a realistic attitude toward solving 
problems, not feeling indifferent where 
they once believed themselves capable 
of coming up with good solutions to 
pressing problems. 

Until the officialdom adopts the atti- 
tude that students, too, can have a good 
idea of how problems can be solved, we 
will see only a future race of timid, un- 
resolved defeatists coming out of this 
college. (JC) 

Jn (Review: 

All The King's Men 

by Robert Warren 
(Review by Sarah Haigler) 

Some critics type this work as a poli- 
tical novel. I prefer to label it as a 
character portrayal of a Southern dema- 
gogue whose fife is in some ways striking- 
ly similar to that of Huey Long of Ala- 
bama. It describes the rise of honest 
Cousin Willie, country hick, to "the 
Boss," Governor Stark. He is the self- 
made man born on the farm, studying 
law and, to his surprise, finding himself 
in politics. From the time he is double- 
crossed, he is compulsively driven in 
search of power. The non-drinking, in- 
nocent country boy becomes acquainted 
with alcohol and not-so-innocent. The 
man of action in the political field, he 
uses bribes and threats for tools. 

The narrator of the story is the gov- 
ernor's secretary, Jack Burdon, who man- 
ages the bribes and researches for skele- 
tons that form the basis for threats. But 
he is not the ambitious vulture or the 
leech, for he has no desire for power or 
money. It is merely his job, and fate 
holds him to it. His attitude is one of 
laissez faire, and all morals appear rela- 
tive. Good is evil, and evil is good. 
Since these elements are difficult to separ- 
ate, Burdon makes no attempt to separate 

Political deals begin to involve Bur- 
don's old friends, and without remorse he 
uses their weaknesses to "persuade" them. 
His conscience starts to prey on him only 
when he finds the evidence of a bribe in 
the history of a friend, Judge Irwin, 
whom he admires and from whom he 
must get assistance in a deal. The scene 
now changes to hospitals and cemeteries. 
The judge who commits suicide turns out 
to be Burdon's father, and Burdon inher- 
its the wealth obtained by the bribe. 

By the end of the book the population 
has violently decreased by four. This is 
accomplished in a complex way. The 
governor's son causes some political trou- 
ble by getting involved with a girl and 
later is paralyzed in a football accident 
and soon dies. Two of Burdon's friends 
are Adam and Anne Stanton. Adam is 
persuaded to take the directorship of the 
new hospital the governor is building. 
One of the governor's jealous lady friends 
informs Adam his sister is mistress to the 
governor. In a rage and thinking his 
position at the hospital was a bribe, 
Adam kills the governor in the capitol 
and is shot down by a bodyguard. These 
events are sufficient to shock Burdon in- 
to a new way of life — with Anne. 

As for the style of the book, it leaves 
much to be desired. In the earlier por- 
tions of the book, descriptions, introspec- 
tion and ancient history (including dis- 
cussion of slave treatment) clumsily de- 
tract from what could be a compact plot. 
There is some forceful description in the 
forms of dialogue and prose. Repetition 
and trite figures of speech are sometimes 
annoying. For instance, who needs to 
be told cigarette smoke forms a haze of 
cutting consistency? And then, only the 
color-blind would think the smoke is 

Some might object to the coarse lan- 
guage of the book, but what other words 
in our language are as expressive and 
communicate a feeling quite as effectively 
and quickly as swear words? 

The final impression is that good arises 
out of evil and vice versa. In "the Boss's" 
words: "There ain't a thing but dirt on 
this green God's globe except what's un- 
der water, and that's dirt too. It's dirt 
makes the green grass." 


by Hal Boyle 

(AP) — Curbstone comments of a pavement Plato: Who should pay for a boy's 
college education, his parents or Uncle Sam? At present millions of U. S. parents 
are impoverishing their old age in order to help their offspring win one of civiliza- 
tion's most prized status symbols, a university degree. 

Most students shoulder a share of the burden by working part time to meet 
some of the expenses. But the main financial blow falls on their parents — that is, 
unless their son is one of those rare lads who can hit a bull's eye with a football at 
60 yards. 

Many a family has to mortgage its homestead in order that its tribal scion can 
pursue such subjects as 'The History of Early Roman Band Instruments" at old 
Siwash. Many a father and mother make do with an old suit or old dress so junior 
can buy a tux to attend his fraternity dance. 

The only help Uncle Sam gives in 
most cases is to allow the parents a $600 
annual deduction from their gross in- 
come for each son or daughter still in 
college after the age of 18. This small 
deduction, many parents feel, is a down- 
right affrontery of common sense. 

An embittered father I know had 
something to say on the subject: "When 
you get right down to it, a good case can 
be made for the idea that the federal 
government, not me, ought to pay for 
sending my boy through college. I'm just 
a sucker in a way. I am breaking my 
back and risking bankruptcy so that my 
son will get his sheepskin. It is worth- 
while for him, as it will help him get 
a better job. 

"But, looking at it from a pure dollar 
and cents level, it is a bad investment 
for me. I will never get back the money 
I spent for my son's education. After 
graduation he will probably marry, have 
his own family, and won't be in a posi- 
tion to return the money I spent to put 
him through college. It is just a $10,000 
down the drain. 

"Now on the other hand, Uncle Sam 
will make a lot of money out of that 
$10,000 my son's education cost me. 
They tell me that each year a boy spends 
in college is worth about $25,000 in the 
earnings in later life. That means my 
son, in return for his four years at the 
university, has an added future income 
potential of $100,000. 

"Who will get all that money? Well, 
over the years my son will probably get 
the use of most of it. But the federal 
government, I figure conservatively, will 
collect at least $40,000 of it in the form 
of income taxes, amusement taxes, tele- 
phone bill taxes, airplane ticket taxes. 

"How do you like that? I fork out 
$10,000 to educate my son and get noth- 
ing, and Uncle Sam, who put out noth- 
ing, will get back $40,000. Is that fair? 
Why shouldn't the federal government 
put up the $10,000 instead of me? It 
would still make $30,000 in the long run 
and a 300 per cent profit isn't to be 
sneezed at." 

"Uncle Sam now pays farmers to keep 
from growing crops and subsidizes in one 
way or another practically any group 
that raises a big enough holler. Isn't 
it about time for parents to organize and 
get a place at the trough, too? Are not 
college kids as much of a natural re- 
source as a soil bank? 

"There are families who, no matter 
how much they scimp and save, can't 
raise the money to send a smart kid to 
college. So the kid quits after high school, 
and every time that happens, Uncle Sam 
loses $40,000 in future taxes. Is that 
good business?" 
Well, is it? 

Boston U. News Editor 
Condemns Faddist Use 
Of Nazi Hate Symbol 

(ACP) — College editors have used 
plain words in the past two weeks to ex- 
press their feelings regarding campus 
swastika paintings. Says the Boston Uni- 
versity NEWS, where one of these in- 
cidents occurred: 

"There will come a time for serious 
awakening on the part of many Univer- 
sity students who hold the insidious paint- 
ing of the swastika on The Towers to be 
a joke and something which should be 
laughed at, then ignored. 

"It seems impossible to us to have col- 
lege students, supposedly the 'cream of 
the crop' of American youth, laugh and 
snicker at the sign which caused terror in 
the hearts of so many less than two de- 
cades ago. 

"Can it be that these students have not 
heard of World War II and the millions 
of Jews who died as the result of the sign 
of the swastika? Can it be that these 
students would treat this incident and all 
others that are spreading throughout the 
country simply as a 'fad' and 'the thing 
to do?' 

"For the past few weeks, anti-Semitism 
symbols and slogans have been published 
and painted throughout the world. At 
first, the initial signs were laughed at as 
the work of a prankster. Then people 
began to remember the years gone by 
when free people were forced to wear 
the yellow Star of David and were 
thrown from their homes and jobs, sim- 
ply because they followed a belief that 
was not allowed to exist. 

"In Germany, where the first acts of 
tyranny and hate rose years ago, the gov- 
ernment and people recognized and fear- 
ed this apparent rebirth of Neo-Nazism. 

"In the land where hate was the 'fad,' 
the people have recognized their errors 
and have attempted to correct them, yet 
here, in the United States, if one goes by 
the words of several of the students, the 
incidents should be forgotten and laughed 

"Yes, let's join with these people and 
laugh and forget. Then, when the 
swastika, or whatever sign of hate raises 
its menacing head to bring terror and de- 
struction upon us, bring these people for- 
ward, and see how they laugh. The 
time for laughing is not here until this 
and every type of hate involving race, 
color, or creed is wiped out. 

"It's up to the student of today to rec- 
ognize the threat these swastikas hold 
over us, and to find the methods of elimi- 
nating them. The sooner they're gone, 
not only from sight but primarily from 
mind, the better off we'll all be."

La Vie Collegienne, Friday, February 12, 1960 

Dutch Flier 

by Fred Meiselman 
The New Look 

The results of final examinations were received with mixed emotions by Dutch- 
men basketball fans. On the better side, Art Forstater, a sophomore back- 
court ace, returned to the squad upon successfully overcoming scholastic proba- 
tion. On the darker side, Sam Butz, senior co-captain, and "Kit" Goncalves, 
freshman rebounder, ran into difficulties and will have to sit out the remainder of 
the season. 

Both Butz and Goncalves were tied for second place honors in scoring with 
192 points apiece. The accurate shooting of Butz will be sorely missed. His 12.9 
game average will be hard to replace. The six-foot-five Goncalves was the fourth 
leading rebounder in the Middle Atlantic Conference, College Division. Coach 
Marquette will have to look ^oward Steve Wisler and Hi Fitzgerald to take up 
the slack in rebounding. 

Art Forstater's return to the squad was quite successful. In his initial outing 
he garnered fourteen points on seven field goals. He also did a commendable 
job as floor general, taking over for Barry Skaler, who saw limited action due to 
a severe leg injury acquired in the Valley's great upset over Moravian. Against 
Dickinson Forstater bettered his first encounter by netting fifteen points and 
adding many assists and rebounds (he was the Valley's second leading rebounder 
in the '58-'59 season). Art's foul shooting has been poor for his standards, but 
last year he shot at such an accurate pace from the line that we are confident that 
he will straighten himself out in that department. 

Barry Skaler is slowly rebounding back into shape following a very painful 
injury to his right thigh in the closing seconds of the Moravian game. As you 
may remember, Barry did an excellent defensive job on Moravian's high scorer, 
Ed Kosman, limiting him to two field goals and seven points. Skaler also man- 
aged to find time to pour in fifteen points that night. 

The LVC team traveled to Bethlehem last night to try to gain another vic- 
tory over the Moravian Greyhounds after handing them an upset loss of 71-67 
on January 16. 

On Saturday night, Gettysburg comes to Annville with one of their hottest 
teams in years. Last year, the Valley lost a one-point decision to them and will 
be out to avenge the loss, although faced by a better group of players. But the 
LV squad is also vastly improved over last year, and their chances of victory are 
good. Instead of a JV game prior to the Varsity tilt, the Juniata College wrestlers 
will meet the Valley matmen. Juniata was one of the two teams defeated by the 
LVC wrestlers last year and the chances of another victory are promising. 


Trailing by a score of 16-5 (the five points by virtue of a forfeit in the un- 
limited class) with only three weight classes remaining in the match, the Lebanon 
Valley wrestlers came on to beat Albright 18-16 in last Saturday's meet. The 
Valley needed two pins and a decision to win the meet, and that's exactly what they 
got. Jay Kreider started off the upset with a decision over Jack Roessner by a 
2-1 margin. Dave Miller, in the 167 pound class, continued with a pin over Bill 
Vought after fifteen seconds of the second period. With the score at 16-13 in 
favor of Albright, Paul Longreen, 177-pound football fullback this past season, 
came up with a surprise pin in 3:25 of the second period to give the Dutchmen 
their first wrestling victory of the season. The unlimited match, in which 335- 
potind Ken Longenecker and not-so-small Vance Stouffer were both ready to go, 
was forfeited by the Albright team. 

Although the wrestling team shows a 1-4 record, they are a capable group 
of athletes. Their 21-13 loss to PMC, the 20-13 E-Town loss and the 20-13 Dickin- 
son defeat indicate this. The remainder of the wrestling season is by no means 
an easy card. It includes Moravian, Juniata, Muhlenburg, Lincoln and Ursinus. 
After Saturday's showing, the Valley matmen stand a good chance of winning a 
few more or at least putting up a good battle. The caliber of this year's team 
along with the staging of the MASCAC championship on our campus has estab- 
lished the sport as a success and a worthy addition to the school's athletic program. 
Coach Charles Poad and his assistant, Mr. Jesse Matlack, have done a com- 
mendable job in this, the first year for both of them at the college. With two 
more home meets (Juniata on February 13 and Lincoln on February 23) plus the 
MASCAC championships on March fourth and fifth, the student body at LVC 
should have an excellent chance to back their team and perhaps come to better 
understand and appreciate this relatively new sport on campus. 

"That horn-blower behind me got my goat . . 

Even good drivers 

can be forced into accidents! A 

hill-climbing truck ahead and a parade of honkers behind 
can try your patience. A tailgater with blazing lights can 
make you boil. But don't let them push you into a rash 
move. Traffic accidents killed 37,000 people last year. Who 
knows how many died because some good driver let another 
pressure him into taking a foolish chance? Don't let anger 
force you to risk lives — yours or others! 

LV Bows To Dickinson 
In Overtime Contest 

On Saturday night, February 6, the 
Flying Dutchmen bowed to the Dickin- 
son College Red Devils, 81-77 in their 
second overtime game in succession. 
Leading at halftime, 42-35, the Valley 
defense could not contain the shooting of 
the visitors who slowly pulled ahead on 
the fine play of Jack Elinsky. 

The Valley caught up with Dickinson 
with several minutes remaining on Art 
Forstater's field goal to tie the score 57- 
57. But the Red Devils moved out in front 
again. With one second left to play and 
with the score at 71-68 in favor of Dick- 
inson, Hank Van de Water scored on a 
field goal and was fouled after the shot, 
which gave him the "one-and-one" bonus 
shots. He made the first to tie the game, 
but he missed the bonus, thus forcing on 
the overtime period. 

Van de Water opened the extra five 
with a field goal to move the Valley into 
the lead. Steve Wisler added another 
two-pointer. But Bob Meals, a freshman 
substitute for the Red Devils, connected 
on two field goals to tie the score. Art 
Forstater added another field goal for 
the Valley, but Ed Becker's final field 
goal and four successful free throws can- 
celled out any hopes of a Valley victory, 
and Dickinson went on to win 81-77. 

Jack Elinsky was the game's high scor- 
er with 23 points. His teammates, Ed 
Becker and Byron Quann, added 20 and 
18 points, respectively. For the Valley, 
Hank Van de Water netted 22, followed 
by 16 for Hi Fitzgerald, 15 for Art For- 
stater, and 12 for Steve Wisler. The game 
was marked with 50 personal fouls, 24 
for LVC and 26 for Dickinson. Five 
players managed to accumulate five per- 
sonal fouls apiece to foul out. Both 
teams came out of the game with identi- 
cal records, 7-6.

JV's Outscore E-Town; 
Knapp High For LVC 

The Lebanon Valley JV basketball 
team kept up their torrid pace by defeat- 
ing the Elizabethtown JV's by a score of 
76-6 1 . The game was played on the Eliz- 
abethtown court February 4. 

Tom Knapp paced the Valley scorers 
with seven field goals and ten foul shots 
for a total of twenty-four points. Kenny 
Showers was runner-up in the scoring de- 
partment, garnering eight field goals and 
five foul shots for a total of twenty- 
one points. Tom Gordon was high scorer 
for E-Town, tallying sixteen points. Val- 
ley led 33-28 at half time and continued 
to play a steady game throughout the 
second half.

Valley Edges E-town 
In Overtime Contest 

Tied at the end of regulation play 64- 
64, the Lebanon Valley Flying Dutch- 
men scored eight points while holding 
the Elizabethtown College Blue Jays to 
two in an overtime to gain a close 72-66 
victory. Playing at the spacious Eliza- 
bethtown Area High School gym Febru- 
ary 4, the host Blue Jays led at half- 
time, 34-30, on the scoring of Ed Harnly, 
Bob Gciger and Glenn Bruckhart. 

Hi Fitzgerald opened up the second 
half with two straight buckets to enable 
the Valley to tie it up, and from there 
on it was nip and tuck with neither team 
pulling far away from one another. 
E-Town had a two-point edge with 20 
seconds remaining when Steve Wisler, 
6'3" LV forward, netted the game-tying 
basket. Starting the five minutes over- 
time Glenn Coates dropped in a quick 
two-pointer followed by a charity toss for 
Hank Van de Water. 

Art Forstater, playing in his first 
game of the year following scholas- 
tic ineligibility, followed with anoth- 
er field goal and Glenn Coates add- 
ed a foul shot. Bob Geiger, Bluejay cap- 
tai, added abasket for the opponents, 
but the Valley still led with less than a 
minute to go. Van de Water was fouled 
and because it was E-Town's seventh per- 
sonal of the half, he was awarded the 
"one-and-one" bonus shot. He converted 
both and seconds later the game ended, 
the Valley in front 72-66. 

Hank Van de Water led al scorers with 
19 points. Steve Wisler added 16 and 
Hi Fitzgerald and Art Forstater each 
netted 14. For the losers, Glenn Bruck- 
hart was tops with 17; Ed Harnly had 16 
and Bob Geiger added 14. 

For the Valley it was their seventh 
win in twelve starts, giving them a 6-3 
Middle Atlantic Conference record while 
the Bluejays dropped their ninth game as 
against four victories, one being at the 
expense of the Dutchmen, 71-59 on Jan- 
uary 9.

Ken Longenecker 
Sought By Pro 
Football Team 

The Pittsburgh Steelers of the National 
Football League have announced their 
wishes of acquiring Ken Longenecker, 
335-pound Lebanon Valley tackle, for 
their 1960 team roster. The gigantic 
Longenecker has completed four out- 
standing seasons on the LV line by 
being sent to the 1959 small col- 
lege Southern All Star team of the 
Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference 
and the coaches' team of the Northern 
Division of the Middle Atlantic States' 
Collegiate Athletic Conference. 

Ken also throws his weight around on 
the wrestling mats as a heavyweight con- 
tender; and, thus far, he is undefeated 
this season. He has wrestled a total of 
30 seconds in competition, pinning his 
PMC opponent in that time. All other 
teams have chosen to forfeit against him. 
Track and field round out Longenecker's 
athletic program at the Valley, where he 
competes in the shot put and discus 

To date, the agreement that Ken has 
arrived at with the Steelers is verbal, 
owing to his loss of intercollegiate eligi- 
bility should he sign a written agreement. 
It is expected that he will sign a written 
contract at the end of the wrestling sea-

Three Valley Athletes 
Receive Player Award 

The Knights of the Valley have made 
available their first series of votes on the 
two most valuable athletes representing 
each athletic team on the Lebanon Val- 
ley campus. The Knights' awards are se- 
lected somewhat differently than they 
were last year. Instead of selecting the 
one most valuable athlete in a two-week 
period, they now select two men from 
each sport from the entire season. 

In football, Les Holstein and Dave 
Miller have received the most valuable 
player awards, while Hank Van de Water 
has been so honored for the first half of 
the basketball season. 

Dave Miller, a junior majoring in 
chemistry, fills in a guard spot on the 
Valley eleven. Although he only plays at 
about 180 pounds, he is considered an 
outstanding tackier and persistent block- 
er. Dave also has made his presence 
felt on the wrestling mats as the out- 
standing wrestler on the team and the 
team captain. 

Les Holstein, another junior and the 
right halfback on the squad, is the jack- 
of-all-trades. He led the team in rushing 
with a total of 435 yards in 93 car- 
ries and was second in individual total 
offense with 440 yards behind Bill De- 
Liberty. In pass receiving, Holstein also 
led the team with eighteen completions 
and 171 yards gained. Holstein scored 
three touchdowns this past season, his 
most important one coming against Mor- 
avian in the Homecoming Day game 
which Valley won, 6-0. Les was the 
team's punter, to round out his versatility. 
On 38 punts, he averaged 32.3 yards. 

Hank Van de Water has been pacing 
the Valley basketball attack with a total 
of 211 points in 13 games for a 16.2 
average. Van de Water is a sophomore 
majoring in chemistry and hails from 
Havertown. Last year as a freshman he 
also led the team in scoring with a 14 
point average. Coach Marquette is look- 
ing forward to Hank's point potential for 
the second half of the season, and so 
far Hank has not let him down, scoring 
19 against Elizabethtown and 22 against 







Any men with or without pre- 
vious track experience and in- 
terested in coming out for this 
year's team are requested to see 
Mr. McCracken in the athletic 
office. The team especially needs 
distance runners to compete in 
the half mile, mile and two mile

PMC Defeats LVC 
In Wrestling Meet 

LV lost its fourth dual wrestling meet 
of the season to PMC by a score of 21- 
13, despite a valiant effort by George 
Weaver, Don Drumheller and Ken Long- 
enecker on January 16. 

The Valley jumped out to an early 8-3 
lead but then fell behind as the PMC 
matmen accomplished three pins to over- 
take the Dutchmen. Longenecker pin- 
ned his opponent in :30 of the first 
period for his third win this year with 
no losses, and George Weaver, a first- 
year man, won a decision from Kester 
of PMC 8-3, in his first win out of four 

Don Drumheller added to the Valley's 
total as he won by default over PMC's 
Lang, who was disqualified in the third 



You can't dig education out of 
the earth. There's only one place 
where business and industry can 
get the educated men and women 
so vitally needed for future 

f>rogress. That's from our col- 
eges and universities. 

Today these institutions are 
doing their best to meet the 
need. But they face a crisis. The 
demand for brains is increasing 
fast, and so is the pressure of 
college applications. 

More money must be raised 
each year to expand facilities — 
bring faculty salaries up to an 
adequate standard — provide a 
sound education for the young 
people who need and deserve it. 

As a practical business meas- 
ure, help the colleges or univer- 
sities of your choice— now! The 
returns will be greater than you

Matmen Take First 
Win Over Albright 

Lebanon Valley's wrestling team ral- 
lied to win its final three matches for an 
18-16 win over Albright before 500 fans 
on February 6. 

Needing five points for a team win 
entering the last match, Paul Longreen, 
former Hershey High grappler, pinned 
Albright's John Bailey in 3:25 of the 
177 pound bout. Longreen used a scis- 
sors and arm bar to beat his opponent. 
Paul's match was the deciding point of 
the afternoon, for it helped put LVC into 
the win column for the first time this 

LVC trailed Albright, which now has 
two wins in eight starts, 16-0 going into 
the 157 pound class as Jay Kreider, a 
freshman, started the ball rolling with a 
2-1 decision over Jack Roessner of Al- 
bright. Then Dave Miller, LVC captain, 
after being out of action for two match- 
es, bounced back to ring up his third 
win in a row this season by pinning Al- 
bright's Bill Vagt in :46 of the second

JV's Lose First 
To Elizabethtown 

The LV Junior Varsity lost a well- 
fought battle to the Elizabethtown Col- 
lege JV's by a score of 74-68 in overtime 
action. This was the first loss of the 
season for the Valley JV's. Freshman 
Kenny Showers captured the game, scor- 
ing honors with 21 points. Ed Dunlevy 
also supported the Valley scorers with 6 
field goals and 6 foul shots for a total of 
18 points. The big gun for E-Town was 
Tom Clarke who gained 5 field goals and 
2 foul shots for 12 points. E-Town held 
a 3 point lead at halftime and the game 
was tied 65-65 at the end of the regula- 
tion time. E-Town iced the game with a 
9 point surge in the overtime period. 


M atmen Defeated By 
Elizabethtown, 20-13

Longenecker scored the only wins for 
LVC by decisions, while Paul Longreen,

No. But conditions are. 

Many college classrooms are

Valley Drops Pair 
At Home To Upsala 
And Elizabethtown 

The Flying Dutchmen suffered defeat 
twice on the home court, losing to the 
Elizabethtown Blue Jays on Saturday, 
January 9, and again to the Upsala Col- 
lege Vikings the following Monday, Jan- 
uary 11. 

Holding Valley to a meager 17 points 
the first half, E-town was outscored 42- 
38 in the Dutchmen's drive the second 
half, but the deficit was too great to be 
overcome, and the final score read 71-59. 
The first few minutes saw an exchange 
of field goals between the two teams, 
with Barry Boyer of E-town netting six 
points. The Blue Jays then pulled away, 
Valley failing to score for seven minutes. 

Starting the second half, Sam Butz's 
shooting began to narrow the gap, but 
LV could not close the gap. Boyer led 
all scorers with 20 points while Blue 
Jay Bill Bechtold netted 18. Butz and 
Van de Water tallied 16 and 14 respec- 
tively; Valley out-rebounded the op- 
ponent 20-13. 

A similar second-half rally in the Up- 
sala game also failed to make up for 
a 22 point first, and while the Dutch- 
men outscored the New Jersey five by 
ten points after the half, the final score 
stood in Upsala's favor, 67-59. 

Bob Cumiskey was the hard man to 
stop as he hit on eight field goals in the 
first half, at one time netting three in 
a row. He totaled the high of 24, trailed 
by Hi Fitzgerald of the Blue and White 
with 21.

Alumni Return, 
Squash Varsity 

The 1955-56 Lebanon Valley College 
varsity basketball team defeated the pres- 
ent Dutchmen five 84-69 in the annual 
Alumni basketball game sponsored by 
Phi Lambda Sigma on January 8. 

Bob Nelson of the alumni was the 
game's high scorer with 28 points, fol- 
lowed by Leon Miller, also of the grads, 
who tallied 26. Miller also pulled off 20 

The alumni opened up the scoring and 
stayed ahead for the entire game without 
being threatened by the Dutchmen. 

For the Varsity, Sam Butz led in the 
scoring column with 24 points, while 
Hank Van de Water had 18. The Alumni 
out-rebounded the Varsity 58-42. Along 
with Miller's 20 rebounds, Bill Vought 
and Bob Nelson combined for 22 to help-

Red Devils Bow 
To Valley JVs 

The Lebanon Valley Junior Varsity 
Cagers added another victim to their list 
by defeating the Dickinson Red Devils 
by a score of 67-58. The game was play- 
ed on February 6 at Valley's court. 

Ken Girard captured the scoring honors 
for the Lebanon Valley JV's by tallying 
eight field goals and nine for 12 from the 
charity stripe for a total of 25 points. 
Tom Knapp, another of the freshmen 
starters, hit the mark for nine field goals 
and four for five from the foul line for a 
total of 22 points. Bruce Meals was the 
top scorer for Dickinson with eight field 
goals and three fouls for a total of nine- 
teen points. Ned Schantzenbach was 
runner up with four field goals and seven 
foul shots for fifteen points. 

Dickinson held a 36-32 halftime lead, 
but the Valley scorers rallied and tied the 
score at 47-47. It was close from that 
point until about five minutes remaining, 
when Ken Girard, Tom Knapp and Gene 
Stambach scored some clutch points.

the opportunity to view one of the most entertaining 
satires ever to hit campus. You will see yourselves, as 
individuals and in groups, as others see you. You will 
see members of the faculty as they appear to the

Historical Society 
Re-elects Miller, 
Shay To Positions 

Dr. Frederic Miller, president of the 
college, was re-elected to a three-year 
term as a member of the Executive Com- 
mittee of the Lebanon County Historical 
Society at a meeting held January 25 at 
the Hauck Memorial Building in Leba- 

Associate professor of history Ralph 
S. Shay, acting chairman of the depart- 
ment of history and political science 
and director of the division of social 
sciences was elected first vice-president 
for two years and will be responsible for 
the programs for the meetings of this 

Dr. Miller was the secretary and libra- 
rian of the historical society from 1940 
to 1950. He has also served for a num- 
ber of years as chairman of the publica- 
tions committee. The society has publish- 
ed the works of Dr. Miller as follows: 
'The Rise of an Iron Community: An 
Economic History of Lebanon County 
from 1740 to 1865"; "The Life of Will- 
iam Rank"; and "The Diaries of William 
Rank", the latter having been edited by 
Dr. Miller with Eleanor G. King. 

Mr. Shay served as second vice-presi- 
dent in 1958-1959 and was chairman of 
the membership committee during those 
years. He was also editor of the publi- 
cations from 1948 to 1951, and again 
since 1957. The historical society pub- 
lished "The History of the Lebanon Val- 
ley Railroad," written by Mr. Shay while 
a senior at Lebanon Valley College as a 
part of the requirements of the senior 
history seminar course. Both Dr. Miller 
and Mr. Shay have presented several 
programs at the meetings of the society.

other persons receiving Federal aid. 
Farmers who get subsidy payments do 
not have to sign it. Neither do business- 
men who get small business loans. 

"So why do we single out students? 
Many educators in our Commonwealth 
and elsewhere have objected strenuously 
to this disclaimer as discriminatory. 

"This provision casts suspicion upon 
students. It makes it appear that we do 
not trust American education, when in 
fact this nation depends more upon its 
system of education than its system of 
missile launching to provide our national 
strength and leadership. 

"The National Defense Education Act 
requires also that a person receiving ben- 
efits swear allegiance to the United 
States. That provision will remain. Any- 
one unwilling to take the uniform loy- 
alty oath should not receive the benefits 
of Federal assistance. That is all the 
affidavit which should be required." 


February 29 to March 3, 1960 
Reverend James M. Singer, Speaker 


For the sake of your future 
and the future of your coun- 
try, let's fervently hope not! 
But the sad fact is that too 
many gifted teachers are leav- 
ing our colleges for better 
paying positions. 

The cause is fundamental. 
They simply cannot make ends 
meet on their present low sal- 
aries. And, much as they love 
their work, they are forced to 
seek jobs in other fields. 

In the face of this discour- 
aging trend, more classrooms 
keep getting more crowded. 
And by 1967, college applica- 
tions are expected to double. 

It's time to put a stop to this 
nonsense. Won't you help? 
Help the college of your choice 
now. The returns will be 
greater than you think.

Opinion Competition 
O^erA ScholarAnip 

During the months of February and 
March, Reed & Barton, America's oldest 
major silversmiths, are conducting a "Sil- 
ver Opinion Competition" in which valu- 
able scholarship awards totalling $2050 
are being offered to duly enrolled wo- 
men students at a few selected colleges 
and universities. Lebanon Valley has been 
selected to enter this competition in 
which the First Grand Award is a $500 
cash scholarship; Second Grand Award 
is a $300 scholarship; Third Grand A- 
ward is a $250 scholarship; Fourth, Fifth 
and Sixth Awards are $200 scholarships; 
and Seventh, Eighth, Ninth and Tenth are 
$100 scholarships. In addition, there will 
be 100 other awards consisting of sterling 
silver, fine china, and crystal with a re- 
tail value of approximately $50.00. 

In the "Silver Opinion Competition," 
an entry form illustrates twelve designs 
of sterling with nine designs of both 
china and crystal. Entrant simply lists 
what she considers the six best combina- 
tions of these. Awards will be made to 
those entires matching or coming closest 
to the unanimous selections of table-set- 
ting editors from three of the nation's 
leading magazines. 

Miss Nancy Fenstermacher is the Stu- 
dent Representative who is conducting the 
Silver Opinion Competition" for Reed 
& Barton at Lebanon Valley College. 
Those interested in entering the Silver 
Opinion Competition should contact Miss 
Nancy Fenstermacher at Lebanon Valley 
for entry blanks and for complete details 
concerning the Competition rules. She 
also has samples of 12 of the most popu- 
lar Reed & Barton designs so that en- 
trants can see how these sterling patterns 
actually look. 

Through the opinions on silver design 
expressed by college women competing 
for these scholarships, Reed & Barton 
hopes to compile a valuable library of 
expressions of young American tastes. 

Annual Finnegan Fund 
Now Accepting Entries 

Applications for the first annual com- 
petition for the James A. Finnegan Mem- 
orial Fellowship Fund Awards will be 
accepted up until March 1, 1960. Entry 
forms for this award, to be bestowed on 
March 26, can be obtained from the Stu- 
dent Personnel Office. 

Established by friends of the late Sec- 
retary of the Commonwealth of Pennsyl- 
vania, this fund will provide the winner 
w:ith a six-week internship in a suitable 
governmental or political office, at a 
weekly stipend of $100. 

The decision of the judges will be 
based upon the quality of essays sub- 
mitted dealing with Mr. Finnegan's polit- 
ical career. 

James A. Finnegan is remembered for 
his role as campaign manager for Adlai 
Stevenson in the presidential election of 
1956. He also served as president of the 
City Council of Philadelphia in the early 
part of the past decade, and during his 
career he was active in prompting higher 
education for young people. 

Physics Representatives 
Attend NYC Meetings 

Two Lebanon Valley College students 
and four faculty members attended the 
joint sessions of the American Associa- 
tion of Physics Teachers and the Amer- 
ican Physical Society. Jack Fath, senior, 
and Amos Hollinger, junior, were stu- 
dent representatives to the meetings in 
New York City from January 27-30. 
They were accompanied by Dr. Jacob L. 
Rhodes, chairman of the physics depart- 
ment, Dr. Samuel O. Grimm, Professor 
J. Robert O'Donnell, and Dr. Henry Hol- 
linger of the chemistry department. 

According to Dr. Rhodes, nearly all of 
the physicists in the country are included 
in the two organizations, which met in 
the New Yorker Hotel, the Statler-Hilton 
Hotel, and the Manhattan Center. 

More than 300 individual papers were 
read at the meetings. Work in the newer 
fields of physics and the teaching of phy- 
sics was discussed. 

Marine Officer Team 
Visits LVC Campus 

A Marine Corps officer selection 
team visited Lebanon Valley College on 
February 8, 1960, to interview students 
who are interested in becoming officers 
in the United States Marine Corps. 

There are two programs, one for fresh- 
men, sophomores, and juniors; the other 
for seniors and recent graduates. 

The first program is popularly known 
as PLC (Platoon Leaders' Class). Parti- 
cipants remain in school with a draft 
deferment. There are no on-campus 
meetings of drills, just two six-week 
summer courses at Quantico, Virginia. 
Men are paid for their summer training, 
and later, by reason of seniority, officers 
receive increased pay. Commissions are 
granted on graduation day, and three 
years of active duty follow. 

Under the OCC (Officers' Candidate 
Class), for seniors and recent graduates, 
completion of a ten-week Officer Candi- 
date School at Quantico, Virginia, is fol- 
lowed by commissioning as a Second 
Lieutenant and three years active duty. 

In the case of aviators, the active duty 
obligation is approximately a year and a 
half longer because of flight training.

The SCA will present a panel discus- 
sion on the LVC chapel programs on 
Wednesday, February 24, at 7:15 P.M. 
in Philo Hall. 

Members of the panel will be the

Campaign Sor 3undA 

Fifty-five alumni of Lebanon Valley 
are engaged as class agents for the alum- 
ni phase of the Annual Giving Fund of 
the college, according to Robert Nichols, 
Lebanon, chairman of the Annual Giving 
Fund Committee of the Alumni Associa- 
tion, and Wayne V. Strasbaugh, director 
of development at LVC. 

The work of the class agents will be 
coordinated by the Giving Fund Commit- 
tee, and the agents will serve as contact 
people for members of their respective 
classes in an effort to maintain interest 
in the college among its 4300 alumni. 
They will also assist in soliciting funds 
in an attempt to reach the goal of 
$60,000 that has been set for the entire 
Giving Fund campaign.

there must be something wrong with it. 
And besides, it runs completely counter 
to the entire capitalistic system, since you 
can't make a tangible profit on it. The 
sciences aren't so bad, but the humani- 
ties, with some of their non-materialistic 
attitudes, will probably have to be even- 
tually eliminated as a detriment to the 
American Way. 

"By lowering teachers' salaries to just 
above the starvation point, we already 
have made splendid progress in this direc- 
tion. However, a small dedicated group 
of educators still keeps it going, however 
feebly. Perhaps the next step will be 
burning books, although with the present 
popularity of television they may soon 
become obsolete and save us the trouble. 

"All things considered, it seems edu- 
cation, especially in the humanities, can 
be a pretty dangerous thing, and perhaps 
it is well that Americans have done such 
an excellent job of keeping it suppress- 

Z)agnton and cArnett 
cAttend Conference 

Two juniors, Sheila Taynton and 
Charles Arnett, represented the LVC Stu- 
dent Christian Association at the 18th 
Ecumenical Student Conference on the 
Christian World Mission at Athens, 
Ohio, December 27 to January 2. 

They were among 3000 students at the 
Conference, of whom more than half 
came from overseas colleges and uni- 
versities. Frontiers of action for Chris- 
tian young people today were consid- 

Bishop Leslie Newbigin of the Church 
of South India, the Rev. Martin Luther 
King of the United States, Bola Ige of 
Nigeria, and the Rev. Harry Daniels of 
Pakistan were among the conference 
leaders. They urged the students to 
consider such challenges to the Christian 
faith as technological upheaval, modern 
secularism, responsibility for statesman- 
ship, higher education, displaced, reject- 
ed, uprooted peoples, and communism. 

Miss Taynton, the daughter of Mark 
Taynton and the late Mrs. Ruth Tayn- 
ton, Falls Church, Virginia, is a sociol- 
ogy major at LVC. She is a member of 
the cabinet for both the SCA and the 
Delta Tau Chi Christian Service Organi- 

Mr. Arnett, the son of Mr. and Mrs. 
James Talkington, Cochranton, is a pre- 
medical student majoring in chemistry 
at LVC. He is an honor student, and, 
like Miss Taynton, is a member of the 
cabinet for both the SCA and the Delta 
Tau Chi.

al celebrations such as Thanksgiving, 
Christmas, and Easter be encouraged and 

A widespread concern was expressed 
in regard to the vagueness of purpose 
of the SCA and the disagreement inside 
and outside the organization as to what 
the main objectives of the group are. A 
confusion also exists concerning the dif- 
fering purposes of Delta Tau Chi and 

Automatic Membership Questioned 

The issue of automatic membership 
for everyone was seriously opposed and 
questioned, Mrs. Cuthbertson stated that 
although this policy may have been prac- 
tical when the SCA was first established, 
many campus spokesmen now feel that 
campus changes may necessitate a revis- 

Suggestions for a more democratic 
method of selecting officers and cabinet 
came to the attention of the interview- 
ers. Spokesmen for campus organiza- 
tions encouraged the choice of SCA lead- 
ers from a wide variety of departments 
of the college. 

Variety Commended 

The variety of this year's SCA pro- 
gramming was commended by students 
and faculty; attempts to present interest- 
ing and educational programs were ap- 
plauded. However, suggestions were 
made for including a meaningful but not 
stereotyped devotional element in these 

Bible studies as conducted by the asso- 
ciation were criticized for obscurity of 
purpose; however, it was felt that these 
small-group meetings should not be dis- 
continued, but merely reorganized for 
increased effectiveness. 

Students and faculty both would like 
to see more informal student-faculty fel- 
lowship established in conjunction with 
SCA programs and activities. Mrs. Cuth- 
bertson and Mr. Sandman found a more- 
than-casual interest in the SCA on the 
part of faculty and administration. 
Recommendations Presented 

The evaluators themselves made sev- 
eral brief but important recommenda- 
tions to the officers and cabinet of the 
association. They suggested that the pur- 
pose of the organization be clarified; 
that the group maintain no single theo- 
logical position but foster a searching 
attitude; that the constitution be re-ex- 
amined and revised if necessary, particu- 
larly in areas of election, cabinet posts, 
tin, awarded by the Harrisburg chapter of 
matic membership policy be reviewed 
and reconsidered.

Terrible Tiny Shows 

Up Varsity Players 

Lebanon Valley fans and basketball 
players alike got a good look at a real 
court man at the Dickinson game on 
Saturday. The notorious "Tiny of the 
Back Court" put on a tremendous dem- 
onstration of ball handling at half time. 

Assisted by a friend, a giant of a man 
compared to Tiny, this wizard of the 
sphere displayed his dazzling footwork 
and great dribbling as the crowd of thou- 
sands cheered its approval. 

Racing from end to end at breakneck 
speeds, these two giants enacted such 
tricky plays as have never been seen 
before on the Dutchmen's court. Ball 
stealing, set shots and distance throws 
were part of their performance. 

Take note, Mr. Skaler; and you, Mr. 
Kohler; better watch your step there, 
Mr. Forstater. Terrible Tiny has come 
to LV. We doubt if you did as well at 
the age of four.

Hearts and Flowers 

Hello, young lovers! You know what 
makes the world go 'round, don't you? 
Yes, of course! And you know what 
time of year this is, too. Why, natur- 
ally! And you're probably busily send- 
ing fluffs of lace to The One, exchanging 
syrupy verse — and just making fools of 
yourselves generally. 

You've been seeing odd-shaped red 
symbols all around you lately, haven't 
you? These symbols are composed of two 
commas arching their backs at each oth- 
er. They're called "hearts." Remember? 
How long has it been since you really 
pondered hearts? 

When you were young and this time 
of year rolled around, you exchanged 
sickening little candies of this shape im- 
printed with profound messages, like 
"Take my heart." I bet that you never 
stopped to consider the meaning of such 
an incongruous imperative. It is, you 
know, a frightening commentary on our 
civilization. "Take my heart." Perhaps 
I should remind you that the Incas had 
very definite ideas on this sentiment — 
very literal ideas, shall we say? 

You've never bothered about thoughts 
like that, though. They're too worldly 
for the rarefied air of your love (sigh) 
affair, aren't they? But before your cloud 
is wafted too far from sight of this mis- 
erable orb, do take into your lives the 
following selected tips and helpful hints 
to make this Valentine season your most 
For the Girls: 

1. Do not believe a word he says 
when he whispers the conventional 
"sweet nothings" into your ear. These 
ravings are undoubtedly the outward 
manifestations of a gastropsychological 
ailment inflected by the ingestion of un- 
natural quantities of those abominable 
confections and the dye imprinted there- 

2. Think of each red box of abnormal 
shape as containing — a time bomb, or 
something equally dynamic. 

3. Treat each Valentine you receive 
as if it were the identical verse he's al- 
ready sent to his other twelve beloved.

"2" kept worrying about the job . . 
Behind the wheel, 

your only job is driving! And like any 
job, making a success of it takes all the concentration you can 
give. In driving, a one-track mind pays big dividends. When 
your troubles get the upper hand, you're heading for an 
accident! Last year, 37,000 people died in traffic accidents. 
Many were killed by drivers who let their minds wander 
from the business at hand. Stay alert and you'll stay alive!

If we stand against the night 
Would life cry and fear smile? 

If we shout at the child 
Would joy leave and sorrow enter? 

If we see amid the distortion 
Would love die and resentment live? 

If we kneel in our misunderstandings 
Would self fall and approval rise? 

If we die while we are 

Would meaning turn and emptiness 

But I stand against the night 
And life smiles and fear cries, 

But I shout at the child 
And joy enters and sorrow leaves, 

But I see amid the distortion 
And love lives and resentment dies, 

But I kneel in my misunderstandings 
And self rises and approval falls; 

But I die while I am 
And meaning reigns and emptiness

Among our many fan letters of last 
week, we received one requesting our aid 
with a deep personal problem. Feeling 
humbly unequal to the task, we engaged 
the services of the nation's foremost 
counselor, Slabby Van Froy. Since then, 
letters have poured in from all over the 
country. We could not, of course, print 
all of them, but we have chosen with ut- 
most care the ones most representative of 
your needs; and Slabby is sending a per- 
sonal reply to each and every one. You 
will notice that Slabby answers your 
questions with a true understanding of 
human needs and an earnest desire to 
help you in your particular problem. 
Dear Slabby, 

I am nine years old and very much in 
love with Schroeder, the captain of the 
Safety Patrol, who is in the sixth grade. 
My mother says I am too young to go 
steady, but I know differently, since 
everyone else in the fourth grade goes 
steady. Please write and tell my mother 
how old-fashioned she is. 

Lucy OTweedle 

Dear Lucy, 

The trueness of your love for Schroeder 
is indeed self-evident. But let us not be 
blinded to the fact that although parents 
sometimes seem old-fashioned, they have 
only your well-being in mind. Patience 
is the all-important word in dealing with 
problem parents such as yours. 

By all means, go steady; it is clear that 
there is no one else for you, especially 
during these, your formative years. We 
suggest, however, that you do not stand 
in the way of Schroeder's important 
duties as captain of the Safety Patrol, for 
keep in mind that a man must hold his 
responsibilities above all else. Do not 
hinder his advancement. Meanwhile, 
have a talk with Mother; I am sure that 
when she realizes the depth of your love 
for Schroeder, as I have, that she will 
do more than encourage your relation- 

Ship - Slabby 
Dear Slabby, 

I am fourteen years of age, very beau- 
tiful, have a fascinating personality and 
a gift for witty conversation. In spite of 
my many assets, I am not popular among 
people of my own age. I realize that 
this may be due to the fact that my 
many proficiencies tend to scare off less 
mature persons. In the case of boys in 
particular I am sure that they are so awed 
by my beauty and charm that they feel 
too far beneath me to speak. Neverthe- 
less, I must associate with these peons 
and therefore would like to know how to 
achieve popularity among members of 
my peer group. 

Clara Clangweedle 

Dear Clara, 

Doubtless what you lack is proficiency 
in a little group talent. It would be 
splendid for you to take up an instru- 
ment with which you could be the center 
of all your peer-group gatherings. The 
oboe is fast growing in popularity, and 
with it you may even team up with a 
friend who plays the bassoon and form 
your own little combo. It is my predic- 
tion that this type of combo will soon be 
as much in demand as the ouijdboard. 
Why not send for my 25c booklet entitled 
"You, Too, Can Reap the Full Benefits 
of the Oboe." Just think, even if you 
do fail in your attempt to gain popularity, 
you will have a real future in snake 
charming; and after all, what is peer- 
group success next to that? 


Dear Slabby, 

I am deeply in love with John, but I 
have been having feelings of anxiety of 
late that I am in some way related to 
him. The stepson of my godfather's 
nephew's second wife by her first mar- 
riage on my father's side happens, by a 
strange trick of fate, to be the half- 
brother of John's great uncle's second 
cousin thrice removed. To add to this 
chaotic family tree, I learned recently, 
with no small remorse, that John's great- 
great-great-grandfather was the nephew 
of my sister-in-law's grandmother's great- 
aunt. Slabby, would it be safe and/or 
legal to marry John? 

(Miss) Abdul Darwin 

Dear Abdul, 

This family situation does indeed pre- 
sent an ominous picture. So ominous, 
in fact, that I for one can't make head 
nor tail of it. I have run thither and 
yon searching for an answer to your per- 
plexing question, but to no avail. I 
can say in all sincerity, however, that 
you are both probably direct descendants 
of Adam. Nevertheless, do not let this 
bring your young love to a tragic end. 
By all means marry; no one will know 
the difference anyway. 


Dear Slabby, 

I am a young poet of thirty-three years 
of age, although my degree of maturation 
makes me pass for twenty-five. A charm- 
ing young lady has asked me to attend a 
librarian's charity ball to take place on 
the Eve of Groundhog Day. You can 
well imagine the quiet thrill which surged 
through me upon being asked to this gala 
function. You may well ask, "What more 
could a young man desire?" But my 
problem, Slabby, is this: Mamma and I 
have come to odds concerning the termi- 
nation of my date. She insists that Abi- 
gail bring me to the door by 9:30, and I 
know that by that fateful hour the porch 
light will be gleaming through the inky 
blackness of night. I think, and have 
even been so bold as to express the opin- 
ion, that I should be allowed to stay out 
until 10, or, at the latest, 10:30. I realize 
that I have defied Mamma, but soon I 
shall enter the realm of adulthood and 
must decide such questions for myself. 
Please, Slabby, help Mamma and me to 
iron out our differences. 

Yours in Poetry, 

Samson Hardwell 

Dear Samson, 

I am in complete sympathy with your 
plea. From all that you have said of 
Abigail, I can perceive that she and 
Mamma shall get along famously. And 
isn't that what we are ultimately striv- 
ing for? Perhaps you could comply with 
Mamma's wishes and return home at 
9:30, inviting Abigail in for tea and thus 
making the remainder of the evening a 
cosy threesome. On the other hand, 
perchance you could even take Mamma 
along with you to the gala event. This 
would make the evening a warmly joyous 
one for all concerned, and I am sure 
that Mamma would readily agree on a 
later deadline if this were to be the case. 
Do not worry needlessly about your prob- 
lem; I have the utmost confidence that 
the three of you can work it out together. 


P. S. Before you make your final de- 
cision it might be well for you to spend 
an hour or two browsing around the li- 
brary. It is amazing how much you can 
absorb just by wandering about the 
stacks. (MLH and SS)

recital in March. Renee Willauer, an 
organ student of Professor R. Porter 
Campbell, will perform at 3:00 p.m. on 
March 6, while Robert Musser, a wood- 
wind major studying with Professor 
Frank Stachow, will be heard at 8:00 
p.m. on March 17, accompanied by pian- 
ist John Homan. 

Miss Willauer's program will include 
renditions of organ works by Bach, 
Franck, Farnum, Reger, Bingham and 
Bonnet. Performing upon the flute, oboe, 
clarinet and alto saxophone, Musser's re- 
pertoire includes numbers by Marcello, 
Guilhaud, Hindemith and Glazounov.

To date there have been, especially in the pages of this publication, a number 
of commendations expressed concerning the Student Christian Association's efforts 
at self-improvement. In line with this, Valley's students have had the opportunity 
to express in print their views on what chapel at LVC should be like. There has 
been much interest aroused in this apparent rebirth of spiritual activity on campus, 
and everyone seems to feel that better things will come of it. 

However, the evaluation of SCA seems only to be leading to a mechanical 
reorganization, designed to spur the group's effectiveness on campus. It concerns 
such areas as discontinuance of universal membership, a more democratic means 
of electing the officers, and other methods of involving more of the general campus 
in its administration. In addition, at a recent meeting, this organization presented 
a panel discussion on chapel programs, and what can be done to improve them. 

As has been stated before, this action is all very commendable, but perhaps 
the time has come for Valley's Christian leaders to stop looking to these superficial 
aspects of their programs; an analysis of the religion itself is long overdue. 

At the panel discussion it was mentioned that a greater attendance had been 
anticipated, since the topic of the meeting should have aroused students to express 
their opinions. The sad truth is that the campus population in general does not care 
in the least about the actions of what they have come to believe is a self-contained 
cliqu6 of religious intellectuals. The approach toward the chapel situation expressed 
at the discussion seems to bear this out. 


Discussion Topics Miss Point 

By far the greatest portion of the meeting was not spent in determining the 
subject matter which would be most appealing in forthcoming chapel addresses. 
It was generally agreed that most were tired of being preached to Tuesday after 
Tuesday, but the solution, according to those present, lies in removing the compul- 
sory attendance stigma and then securing "big name" theologians and professional 
speakers for our services, who would attract the students and induce them to attend. 

In any event, those present were not unrealistic about the problem of student 
interest. In order to persuade a Valleyite to close his book and listen in chapel, 
you have to do one of two things: present a subject which is inherently heretical 
or basically off-beat, or invite a speaker who is notorious for his unconventional 
theology (Paul Tillich was an oft-repeated name) who will charge Valley an out- 
rageous fee to expound upon his "modern, soul-searching Christian ideas." 

It appears that you can no longer present b^sic Christianity to the present 
generation and expect them to listen. Unless we are willing to admit that this is a 
fundamental weakness of the religion itself, we must come to the conclusion that 
the fault lies with those who are presenting it. 

This is not to say that Valley's students should not be exposed to every pos- 
sible area of contemporary thought, for a total education demands this. But if 
the SCA and those who plan our chapel programs are really interested in promoting 
Christianity for its own sake, they will search until they discover why it takes a 
beatnik or a controversial personality to fill Philo Hall on Wednesday or the Col- 
lege Church on Tuesday morning. (PHR) 


As host to groups of friends, parents, alumni, conferences and meetings which 
visit the campus, LVC can justly take pride in many aspects of the college. But 
when entertaining guests in the dining hall, a host or hostess should color with 
embarrassment when the visitors slip good topcoats or furs from their shoulders 
and, looking despairingly around the lobby, have to resort to tossing the garments 
onto the already-piled-high umbrella racks, frequently only to see the coats promptly 
slide to the floor. 

Moreover, college students themselves bring with them to school a limited 
supply of winter coats and, what is more, a limited budget. Indeed, this budget 
rarely includes an allotment for the replacement of not-inexpensive tweeds and 
car-coats which have been muddied and ruined in the dining hall on a rainy day. 
This deplorable result of the disappearance of hangers in the lobby has, evidently, 
gone ignored or neglected by those who, with an overwhelming faith in human na- 
ture, placed the attractive LVC hangers there in the first place. 

There is distressing evidence that many of these hangers now adorn the 
closets of a surprising number of LVC students. No doubt they also enhance the 
coatracks of their friends from other campuses. The dining hall committee ob- 
viously overestimated the integrity of souvenir-seekers and Valleyites whose sport- 
coats are going limp. Perhaps the dining hall committee lacked foresight in pur- 
chasing the hangers; a style permanently attached to the racks may have been a 
wiser choice. 

But the real disgrace lies in the fact that thoughtless students did not take 
care of those that were provided, and furthermore that the dining hall committee, 
in spite of the considerable time in which the problem has existed, has not publicized 
any intention of redeeming the situation. 

As observers and victims of this embarrassment, the La Vie editors express the 
hope of the student body that some action will be taken in the near future. 

Dry cleaning bills are high, and the cost of a new winter coat is even higher. 


cQetterd to cQa Vie 

To the editors of La Vie: 

The present totalitarian government 
in Russia is noted for its strict censor- 
ship of all the activities in that country 
which may be in contradiction with what 
its officials consider "Party Line." 
Whenever the government plans an event, 
all other simultaneous events which might 
conflict with its program are cancelled. 
Since Russia is a totalitarian state this 
is to be expected. Is this to be expected 
in a democratic society? 

There seems to be some similarity 
between this totalitarian practice and one 
which is prevailing on our campus at the 
present time. The hours between 7 and 
9 P.M. on Wednesday evenings are ban- 
ned for all student activities except those 
sponsored by the SCA. Fridays and Sat- 
urdays are undesirable days for schedul- 
ing meetings because of our large num- 
ber of "suitcase" students and also be- 
cause a large percentage of our athletic 
events occur on these days. This leaves 
our other organizations with three days 
in which to jam their meetings. 

This practice of Wednesday night cen- 
sorship seems to indicate that our "7-to- 
9 Club" can't stand competition. I fully 
realize that this is a church sponsored 
college and it has the right to make its 
own rules. However, it is a religion 
which believes in the Reformation's ideas 
of freedom of thought and practice. I 
suggest that it follow these ideas. 

To criticize without offering any solu- 
tion is the cheapest form of criticism. 
My solution to this situation is that the 
SCA meet bi-monthly under its present 
censorship conditions but allow the inter- 
vening Wednesday nights to be utilized 
?y our more democratic organizations. 

Sincerely yours, 
J. T. R. 

Dear Editors of La Vie: 

For the past couple of months, much 
emphasis has been placed on and criti- 
cism leveled at the weekly chapel pro- 
grams. In an effort to make the chapel 
programs more effective, a faculty com- 
mittee was formed and one result of that 
committee's meeting was the decision to 
form a Chapel Choir, the express pur- 
pose of which would be to provide better 
and more stimulating music in the week- 
ly services (with apologies to the Concert 
Choir and soloists that now perform). 

This decision was published in La Vie, 
an announcement was made in the chapel 
service last week, and application blanks 
were passed out in the same service, to 
be filled out by those interested. Approx- 
imately 60 people either applied, or were 
"applied" by their friends(?). Vocal expe- 
rience cited ranged from singing in legi- 
timate choral groups to "singing at the 
Met during the summer," and "singing in 
the shower and bathtub." Evidently what 
was intended as a constructive idea, given 
as an attempt to counter the gripes of 
students on campus, was taken as a joke 
by most students. For on Monday, when 
a meeting of the applicants was called, 
only 16 of those 60 applicants showed 
up; some of the absentees had a valid 
excuse, but the majority did not. 

Are we, as students of Lebanon Val- 
ley, or are we not, interested in helping 
to solve a problem which concerns all of 
us? There seems to be too much talk and 
very little action on this campus. (No 
wonder it's been so windy at Lebanon 
Valley College this semester!) Instead of 
griping about how much of a drag our 
chapel services are, let's work to im- 
prove them. I dare everyone who signed 
up to come out and audition. 

Let's have some of that "School Spirit" 
everyone talks about, outside of cheering 
at athletic contests. There are other acti- 
vities which deserve our whole-hearted 



J^a Vie Snquired 

by Connie Myers 

Reports of restlessness among the 
ranks of student workers has taken La 
Vie behind the scenes of one of the larg- 
est service organizations on campus, the 
college dining hall. To those of us who 
only stand in the creeping queues or sit 
at the tables awaiting delivery of edible, 
and sometimes not very edible, offerings, 
it may seem impossible that there could 
be many problems among the dish-clang- 
ing crew. 

Beware of such hasty assumptions. 
More than edible food is involved in 
man's economic needs. This year a new 
pay system was instituted in the dining 
hall. Instead of the former years' stan- 
dard salary for each division of dining 
hall workers — waiters, dishwashers, and 
headwaiters — students who serve in these 
capacities are now paid on an hourly 

Opinions concerning this new system 
/ary sharply with the number of hours 
which the students work and with their 
appreciation of the work of others. Fol- 
lowing are views expressed by some 
members of the Student Cafeteria-Work- 
ers Union and some suggestions for im- 
provement of their plight. 

Chuck Arnett: "The new system 
doesn't inspire us to work any more than 
the old one did. It doesn't affect effi- 
ciency or amount of work. Usually there 
is an imbalance in the work schedules 
because of the students' class schedules. 

have a suggestion for improvement: 
higher wages. Perhaps it would be good 
to grant positions and awards on the ba- 
sis of seniority. The kids might work 
harder and those who work all four years 
should certainly get something. 'Head- 
waiter' should be an earned position." 

Norma Jane Morris: "I do think it's 
a fair system from the money angle. But 
I think there should be more factors tak- 
en into consideration in making out the 
working schedules for better distribution 
of hours to everyone. I would say that 
it would be a good idea to have a gradu- 
ate wage for the waiterships." 

Marylin Shaver: "Our hourly wage is 
fair, but the library worker's is higher 
than ours. We certainly work harder in 
the dining hall than those in the library 
do. There should also be a difference in 
the line and bus pay." 

Don Drumhellen "The new system is- 
good because people with the opportu- 
nity and free time can make extra mon- 
ey. Some working schedules differ and 
are unequal among kids whose class 
schedules are the same. If they would 
hand in lists of the times they are avail- 
able and prefer to work it would be a 
help to the people making up the sched- 
ules; that way those who want to work 
can. If the headwaiterships were acquired 
by working a certain amount of time, 
more people would feel more kindly to- 
ward them. 

Mary Davies: "It is better this way 
but not fair because of some schedules. 
Really, it can't be helped that some 
schedules are uneven. I wouldn't change 

George Hiltner: "Efficiency is better 
this year. Payment of substitutes doesn't 
have to be worried about by the individ- 
ual. The benefits of the system depend 
on one's working hours. The differenti- 
ated payments of waiters, dishwashers 
and headwaiters is not quite clear. Per- 
haps this could be explained and a more 
definite basis set up." 

Patsy Wise: "Definitely it's better this 
way. You work for what you get. But 
still time isn't divided fairly." 

Harold Dom: "I think it's good. It's 
possible to get lots of hours in. How- 
ever, if one has to do a lot of studying 
it means little work. Generally speaking, 
this part is not good. I'm for higher 

Bob Dignault, Hakim Lys, Walt Smith: 
"For more efficiency we need more room 
to work in. The hourly wage system is 
better. If you get a substitute, you don't 
have to worry about paying him your- 
self. We should have a time clock to 
punch in." 

Dan Shearer: "The new system is a 
definite improvement although it has a 
lot of bugs as does any new system. Job' 
distribution should be checked into. 
Some people spend much time just stand- 
ing around." 

Amy Hartman: "I can see both sides 
of the issue, but I really prefer the old 
method. The number of waiters making 
good total wages is less. Raising the 
hourly rate might help to raise the aver- 
age salary to what we got before." 



Hot Dog Frank's 

The following paragraphs will be de- 
voted to a number of accumulated gripes 
and suggestions concerning many as- 
pects of campus life which have come to 
the attention of the editors. These often 
irritating trivialities may affect only a 
few members of the college community, 
yet they can be so easily remedied that 
perhaps merely drawing them to the at- 
tention of the right individuals will alle- 
viate the annoyances. 

The casual observer has come to the 
conclusion that there are more assistant 
table heads at the evening meals than 
there are regular diners. It Is a common 
fact that the trampling herds in the outer 
lobby may have a somewhat devastating 
effect upon the delicate nerves of some 
of our students; however, there should be 
no more than two persons at each table 
who enter early by the Sheridan Avenue 
entrance. Maybe a Sherlock posted at the 
side door would keep things fair for all 
of Valley's students. 

Would it be possible for the dining 
hall to arrange to sell an extra glass of 
milk to those desiring it on Friday even- 
ing and Saturday noon when only one 
glass is offered? This would preclude 
much wrangling with the waitress be- 
hind the line, and would satisfy the bot- 
tomless pits who don't drink coffee or 
tea. Also, if the silverware were placed at 
the end of the serving line instead of at 
the beginning at breakfast, each diner 
could select only the utensils needed for 
the food chosen. This would eliminate 
much needless washing of unused silver- 
ware, and every drop of water saved is a 
mill not spent. 

The Resident Women's Student Gov- 
ernment Association wishes to drop the 
tag "Jiggerboard," but the aforemention- 
ed name is ungainly to say the least. 
Couldn't it be called a "Council," an 
"Executive Board," or some such easily 
handled appelation? Some nickname is 
likely to appear no matter what the ac- 
tual title may be, but a shorter title 
might lead to a more descriptive and 
dignified sobriquet. 

Must the girls be pushed around so 
carelessly in the dining hall lobby? Per- 
haps it is too much to expect the boys to 
grant them greater favor than they do 
their fellows, but since the girls do tend 
to be smaller in stature, perhaps they 
coud be given a handicap, for instance, a 
six-foot head start toward the coat racks 
(provided the hangers ever return). While 
we are on the courtesy topic, a little less 
booing at Valley's basketball games might 
have made a more favorable impression 
upon visitors. It is amazing that such 
demonstrations did not result in a tech- 
nical foul. 

The time has come around when harried 
class treasurers once again must attempt 
to collect class dues. Student opinion is 
desired concerning the possibility of in- 
cluding this charge on the second semes- 
ter bill. In this form, it would ha-dty 
be noticed, and the treasurers could toss 
out their tranquilizers. 

Any other suggestions concerning any 
phase of life at LVC would be appre- 
ciated, as well as news of accomplish- 
ments along these or other lines.

About Three Continents 

By U. S. Senator Hugh Scott 

"I have visited 80 countries in the past 29 years. I have never seen a three- 
legged man. I have never seen a man with green hair. The peoples of the world 
have more similarities than they have differences." 

I made those remarks in Canberra, Australia, last November at the first stop on 
a 40,000 mile Congressional tour which took me to Asia, the Middle East and 

Back in Washington now, I could make the same statement, and add that 
people in the 19 countries which I visited almost universally admire the United 
States, respect our people, want to trade more with us, and look to us for leadership 
and inspiration which will bring a greater degree of peace and productivity to all the 

My first stop in Australia was as an official U. S. observer at the Common- 
wealth Parliamentary Association, a conference of legislators from all countries in 
the British Commonwealth of Nations. From Australia I traveled as a "subcom- 
mittee of one" to study U. S. foreign trade in various parts of the world for the 
Senate Committee on Interstate and Foreign Commerce, of which I am a member. 

The foreign trade work began in Ja- 
pan, which I joined up for a few days 
with Senator Clark for a series of con- 
ferences with Japanese trade leaders. We 
told them that certain of their trade prac- 
tices were demoralizing localities served 
by the Pennsylvania garment industry 
and we urged a more orderly method of 
sh pping to the United States. To our 
pleased surprise, the Japanese business- 
men and government officials were coop- 
erative and understanding. 

Out of these meetings came a decision 
by the Japanese to regulate more care- 
fully their exports of ready-made men's 
clothing to the United States — not to 
swamp our markets or to dump their 
products. The agreement was voluntary 
and appeared satisfactory to both the Ja- 
panese and our own people. If nothing 
e'sc were accomplished on this trip, that 
agreement in itself would have been a 
worthwhile reason for going half way 
around the world. 

Ugly Americans? 

One of the objectives of my trip was 
to see at first hand what sort of a job 
was being done by our representatives 
abroad. American foreign service officers 
have come in for some severe criticism 
recently in such books as "The Ugly 

Since I had been abroad before, I won- 
dered how much progress was being 
made in such areas as understanding lo- 
cal languages, in adjusting to local condi- 
tions, and in finding better ways to com- 
municate with people. 

When I had visited Hong Kong 10 
years ago there was not one member of 
the American Consulate who could speak 
Chinese. This time when I stopped at 


rica. Airplanes helped me cover much 
vast distance in the two months at my 
disposal. Although 1 would have pre- 
ferred to spend more time in each place, 
this fast movement from point to point 
and people to people enabled me to get 
a fairly comprehensive understanding of 
this part of the world and its diverse 
problems. The fact that I had come to 
know much of Asia and some of Africa 
previously, was also helpful. 

As I moved, for instance, from Israel 
to Kenya to South Africa it was appar- 
ent that one nation has arrived, the sec- 
ond is arriving and the third is trying 
desperately to hold back the clock. 
Dynamic Israel 
Israel has arrived. After centuries of 
planning and praying, the Hebrew people 
have regained their ancient homeland 
and they have a dynamic outlook which 
infects nearly everyone in the nation. It

Seniors Teach In 
Secondary Schools 
In Lebanon Area 

Seventeen student teachers from LVC 
are serving in Lebanon area junior and 
senior high school classrooms in order 
to complete a major part of their second 
semester teacher's training in secondary 

Four of the student teachers have been 
assigned to the field of biology, three to 
general science, six to history, two to Eng- 
lish, and one each to mathematics, Span- 
ish, and chemistry. In the list which fol- 
lows, the student and the cooperating ex- 
perienced teacher are listed respectively.

I found similar improvements in Is-

Consular people, as well as their chil- 
dren, are now fluent in Hebrew. So also 
in South Africa where our officials are 
now learning Afrikaans, the national lan- 

But there is far more to overseas duty 
than speaking the local tongues. One has 
to see conditions where we send our 
Americans to work to appreciate the 
problems with which they must contend. 
Badminton Tournament 

In Saigon, the capital of South Viet- 
nam, I saw an outstanding application of 
"shirt-sleeve diplomacy." While it may 
not seem so, one of the most important 
things which our Ambassador is doing in 
Saigon is to arrange a badminton tour- 

These games occur on his own court 
twice each week and they go on for 
several months. The tournaments bring 
American Foreign Service Officers into 
informal contact with Asian officials 
from many nearby nations. It has proved 
to be a highly effective way to bring 
People together when they are not wear- 
ing their formal clothes and formal man- 
ners. Their guard is down and their 
friendship is up. This, while it is only a 
first step, is an extremely important one 
to help break down barriers to the free 
flow of ideas from one people to another. 
From these casual get togethers there is 
devloping continual improvement in pro- 
Western attitudes. 

From the Orient we went through In- 
to the Middle East and then to Af- 

whom I conferred for a delightful hour 
in Jerusalem. It shows in the faces of 
the young people in Tel Aviv like the 
two married daughters of my good Phil- 
adelphia friend, Simon Bricklin. 

This nation is not merely looking 
ahead; it looks back upon history with 
fondness and understanding. There is a 
place in Israel called Nabi Rubin, the site 
of the only ancient Jewish village not 
destroyed by the Roman Emperor Titus. 
The village has, of course, disappeared 
by now. All that is left are mounds and 
mounds of shards, broken pieces of pot- 
tery. I had the pleasure of digging 
around in this site and actually picking 
out my own relics. 

Severe Racial Segregation 
When I reached the beautiful but em- 
bittered Union of South Africa, I had 
the feeling of a people trying to hold 
back the clock. The official policy of the 
country is "apartheid," the most severe 
racial segregation of any country in the 

This segregation is directed primarily 
against the native Africans, who are a 
heavy majority of the population. But it 
separates the whites also from Asians 
and coloreds (whom we would refer to 
as of mixed race). There is bitter con- 
troversy about this policy, even among 
the whites. 

This enforced racist policy bedevils an 
otherwise wonderful country, one with 
which the United States would like to 
associate more closely. The scenery in 
the Union is breathtaking. The people 
are excellent hosts and very capable bus- 

As in Pennsylvania, mining is a pnn- 

results in the examinations and the high 
school record of the contestant. 

To be eligible for the competition, 
each contestant had to be in the upper 
third of his high school class. 

All contestants took a general test 
and an elective examination of their own 
choosing in one of thirteen subject areas. 

While on campus for the tests, each of 
the students was given an opportunity 
for an interview with a member of the 
LVC faculty. All contestants were the 
guests of the college at lunch.

Seminary Dean Is 
Speaker In Chapel 

Dr. J. Bruce Behney, dean of the Uni- 
ted Theological Seminary, Dayton, Ohio, 
was the guest speaker in the weekly cha- 
pel service, Tuesday morning, Febru- 
ary 23. 

A graduate of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege, Dr. Behney is also a graduate of 
the United Theological Seminary and 
holds a Ph.D. degree from Yale Univer- 
sity. He received the honorary degree 
of Doctor of Divinity from LVC in 1941. 

From 1930 to 1931 he served as inter- 
im professor of Greek and religion at 

around a peaceful way of life, a house Lebanon Valley. Since 1935 he has been 
with a roof which does not leak, the op- I affiliated with the United Theological Se- 
portunity for one's children to advance minary of the EUB Church. During this 
somehow to a happier way of life than | affiliation he has been professor of 
their parents have known, freedom from church history, professor of systematic 
the oppression of governments and the theology, and since 1951, Dean. From 

hope that all men may live as brothers. 

It was heartening to have this opinion 
fortified by almost everything I saw and 
almost everyone I met. It should encour- 
age us all to support the efforts being 
made by our country and by our allies 
to create a more peaceful and prosperous 

vely, the College Youth Fellowship pro- 
gram, under the direction of Don Drum- 
heller, '62, has been completely reorgan- 
zed. Meetings, formerly held weekly in 
he College Church, will now take place 
)nce a month, usually in Carnegie 

Present fellowship members feel that 
ess frequent and better-planned meetings 
will hold more appeal for students who 
cannot regularly attend weekly meetings 
due to studies and other activities. It is 
hoped that the change in meeting-place 
from the College Church to the Carnegie 
Lounge will give the meetings an atmos- 
phere of informality and indicate that the 
fellowship is an interdenominational 
group intended for participation by all 
college students, rather than a select 
group of EUB church members. 

The first meeting of the re-organized 
group, to be held March 20 in the 
lounge, will deal with sex and family and 
education in these fields. Dr. Brubaker 
of Annville, Elmer Faber, former Penna. 
State Police Captain, and Rev. Mark 
Hostetter of the College Church will lead 
a discussion on this topic. Dr. Brubaker, 
an M.D., has also served as a family 
counselor, while Mr. Faber, in his con- 
nection with the Juvenile Department of 
the State Police, has made extensive stud- 
ies of the relation of juvenile sex activi- 
ties and crime. 

Other programs which are being 
planned include a trip to the Mormon 
Temple in Harrisburg and a speaker 
from the Alcoholics Anonymous. The 
dates, places, and topics for future pro- 
grams will be announced on the weekly 
College Calendar. 

These changes in programming, time, 
and place of the College Youth Fellow- 
hip have been made in an attempt to 
nterest all students of all denominations. 
\\l students are urged to attend the first 
meeting of the re-organized group and to 
submit any suggestions for further revi- 
sion and improvement of the monthly 
programs to Don Drumheller, program

Chemistry Students 
See Firestone Plant 

Members of the Chemistry Club visit- 
ed the Firestone Tire and Rubber Com- 
pany at Pottstown, Monday, February 
15. The group included 25 chemistry 
students and faculty members Lockwood 
and Hollinger. 

Soon after arriving the club met a 
Firestone employee who outlined the his- 
tory and operations of Firestone and of 
the Pottstown plant. They were then di- 
vided into three groups and taken on a 
tour of the plant. They were shown how 
various types of tires are molded, put to- 
gether, tested, and prepared for market. 
Later they saw where the tires are stored 
before shipping to market in the eastern 
part of the nation. 

The trip included a tour of the resin 
plant where the chemicals that go into the 
making of tires are prepared and mixed. 
While in the resin plant, they went 
through the laboratories where the chem- 
icals and tire materials are tested and 

Before their departure the LVC visit- 
ors received pamphlets explaining the 
role of chemistry in the tire industry.

Dr. Rhodes Attends 
Protestant Seminar 

Dr. Jacob L. Rhodes, chairman of the 
department of physics, was a delegate to 
an interdenominational seminar sponsor- 
ed by the action agencies of 15 major 
Protestant denominations in cooperation 
with the Washington Office of the Na- 
tional Council of Churches on February 
16 to 19 in Washington, D. C. 

The Commission on Christian Social 
Action of the Evangelical United Breth- 
ren Church invited Dr. Rhodes to attend 
the conference with a delegation from 
35 states and Canada. 

The seminar, whose theme was "Your 
Government and You," offered religious 
leaders an opportunity to study the Fed- 
eral Government at its source. Miss 
Thelma Stevens, executive secretary of 
the Department of Christian Service of 
the Methodist Church, was the chairman 
of the sponsoring interdenominational 

Most of the seminar's sessions were 
held in the Lutheran Church of the Re- 
formation located two blocks from the 
Capitol Building. Dr. Rhodes attended a 
session in the State Department and had 
special appointments with Senator Clark 
and Congressman Mumma during the 

rallied in the second half paced by Joe 
Mushens and went on to win. 

After leading 39-35 at halftime, the 
Valley was unable to connect on foul 
shots and thus lost their third consecutive 
game. Mushens was the high scorer for 
the All-Stars with 17 points, as Dick 
Wagner scored 12 to help the winning 
effort. Lee Copeland was Valley's top 
scorer with 22 points. Tom Knapp took 
the runner-up spot with a 16 point per-

Women's Varsity Drops 
Four of Five Games 

A tallying of the results of the wom- 
en's basketball games shows a season's 
record of one win and four losses plus 
a victory over the LVC alumni women. 

The season was hampered by many 
injuries, with only three members of the 
starting lineup available to begin one of 
the games. However, a great deal of 
defensive credit is due the hard-fighting 
guards Kathy Patterson, Shirley Angle, 
Judy Leith, Liz Gluyas and Isobel Mil- 

Alumni Defeated 

The season began with a scrimmage 
game with the alumni, February 5, which 
LVC won 33-24. The returning alumni 
guards were Jan Noll, A. Reynolds, Ruth 
Dietz and Jeanne Noll. Ruth Howell led 
the alumni scoring as she did when she 
played varsity. Other alumni forwards 
were Jo Young and Mary Beaver. 
Gluyas Scores 20 in MS Game 

February 1 1 marked the first inter- 
collegiate game with Millersville State. 
The final score here was 32-25, with 
LVC winning their sole victory of the 
season. Eileen Gluyas was the highest 
scorer of both teams with 20 points. The 
JV team was also victorious over MS, 
37-30. Phyllis Cotter led the LVC team. 
E-Town Wins, 48-26 

A fast game with E-Town on Febru- 
ary 16 ended in a loss for the Valley 
women, 48-26. Eileen Gluyas again had 
the distinction of high scorer for LVC 
with 14 points. .The game was a rough- 
ly-fought one on the opponents' floor, 
with Cyndi Kratzer scoring a high of 16 
points for E-Town. 

Dead-Eye Shots Aid Shippensburg 

The game with Shippensburg State, 
February 20, featured some very quick 
ilays on the part of Sally Stought of SS 
who couldn't be stopped, leading her 
earn to a 41-24 win over Valley. Eileen 
Gluyas was high for LVC with 13 points. 

E-Town Wins Second Victory On 
LVC Court 

A return engagement with the E-Town 
earn was played at LVC and was a close 
game all the way through. Although 
Valley's women seemed determined for a 
victory, E-Town defeated them 40-35 in 
spite of Eleanor Black's nine foul shots 
and total of 19 points, the high scoring 
for both teams. 

Away Game With MS Is Heartbreaker 

The February 29 game with Millers- 
ville State on the opponents' court was 
lost by one point. A last-minute rally 
on the part of the Valley women tied the 
score 32-32, but even with this valiant 
effort, a foul called on LVC quelled the 
girls' hopes for victory. 

This season was the last for seniors 
Eleanor Black and Shirley Angle, both 
valuable squad members. On the experi- 
ence gained by this year's team, Coach 
Bowman hopes to have laid a foundation 
for a more successful record next season.

Campus AlUStars 
Drop JV Contest 

In their final game of the season, the 
LV Junior Varsity defeated the Intra- 
mural All-Stars of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege by a score of 88-60. Lee Copeland

of him and the staff, Carl remarked, "By 
all indications the juniors of this year 
are doing a top-notch job on the year- 
book. This means that we sophomores 
have a big challenge in trying to match 
and surpass their efforts next year." 


Hofstra Wins Despite 
Half-Time Valley Lead 

The Hofstra Flying Dutchmen, rated 
as the number three small college team 
in the country, received a momentary 
shock at the hands of the LVC quintet 
on February 22 but finally emerged vic- 
torious. Finding Valley's defense hard 
to penetrate, the Long Island school 
could not get started and trailed Valley 
at half time 25-24. But in the second 
half, Hofstra got going with the opening 
field goal and never again trailed in their 
60-42 victory. 

Richie Swartz opened the second half 
with two straight field goals and Bob 
Stowers added a field goal and two fouls. 
Stan Einbender added four more points 
as the Valley failed to garnish a tally un- 
til Hank Van de Water scored after sev- 
eral minutes had elapsed. From then on, 
Hofstra continued to pour it on and eas- 
ily went on to win. 

Brant Alyea and Richie Swartz were 
high for Hofstra with 14 apiece while 
Bob Stowers and Ted Jackson shared 22 
equally. Barry Skaler and Hi Fitzgerald 
topped Valley's list with 1 1 each. Hof- 
stra had committed ten personal fouls 
and one technical, charged to their coach, 
Bill Van Breda Koeff, at the close of the 
first half. Captain Barry Skaler converted 
it to give LV their first half lead.

Varsity Drops Eight 
To Albright Cagers 

Traveling to Reading on February 20, 
the Flying Dutchmen suffered their 
eighth defeat of the season at the hands 
of Albright by a score of 84-57. Playing 
in a manner similar to their first en- 
counter with the Lions, LV could only 
manage 23 points in the first period to 
Albright's 34. The only bright spot for 
LV fans was Barry Skaler's typically 
idept job on defense. 
Skaler kept Albright's freshman sen- 

ation, Tom Pearsall, to a mere seven 
joints, only a fraction of his season's av- 
erage. But Albright managed to place 

our players in the double figures. Sam 
Preston was high for the winners with 17 
and was matched bv Vallev's Hank Van 
de Water.

JfpAeA Vo 9&M 

Playing their last away game of the 
year February 26, the Valley JV's ran 
into stiff competition from the F & M 
junior varsity. F & M won the game 
by a 72-69 score. Bob Rias and Gary 
Halen were the big guns for the boys 
from Lancaster. Rias scored 23 points 
on 10 field goals and 3 foul shots while 
Halen scored 8 field goals and six foul 
shots for a total of 22 points. 

F & M had a three point lead at half- 
time and they never trailed from that 
point on. Tom Knapp poured 20 points 
through the nets but the combined efforts 
of Halen and Rias kept Franklin and 
Marshall in the game. Ken Girard con- 
tributed six field goals for 12 points in a 
losing cause.

Dutch Flier 

by Fred Meisclman 

The 1959-60 Lebanon Valley Basketball season is over and the vastly improved 
Dutchmen have achieved a commendable 11-9 record. Highlights of the season were 
upset victories over Moravian, Gettysburg and Drexel. In the two final games, the 
Valley defeated F & M 65-62 and Rider 65-55. 

Playing host to the nation's number three basketball team, LVC dropped a 
60-42 decision to Hofstra. In what started out as a potential upset, the "Flying 
Dutchmen" of Hofstra trailed the Valley 25-24 at half time, but the abilities of 
Richie Swartz and Ted Jackson put Hofstra in an early second-half leed, and kept 
them there until the final horn. The powerful Long Island quintet showed the reason 
for their reputation in that five players hit in the double figures. Brant Alyea and 
Richie Swartz and Ted Jackson put Hofstra in an early second-half lead, and kept 
distributed 22 points. Stan Einbender added the final ten. LVC, held to a mere 18 
field goals, was led by Barry Skaler and Hi Fitzgerald, each with 11. 

Last Friday night, Franklin and Marshall College played host to the Dutchmen 
at the Lancaster National Guard Armory. After a heated argument concerning the 
correct half time score, Valley emerged ahead, 33-31. Starting the second session, 
the Diplomats, behind Jim Weinstein, started to give the Valley a tough time. Hank 
Van de Water tied the score at 49-49 with a field goal and then immediately added 
another. Then Bob Baron and Weinstein added two straight goals for F & M to 
tie the score at 54-54 but Art Forstater hit on a quick one to put the Valley ahead 
again. Trailing 62-61 with less than a minute to go, Van de Water sank a long jump 
shot to put LV in front. Barry Skaler added two foul shots to clinch the game. 
Glenn Coates, with six field goals and a foul in the first half, was the high scorer for 
LVC, with a total of 20. Van de Water, Skaler and Forstater scored 15, 14 and 13 
points respectively. For F & M, Jim Weinstein was high with 30 points on 12 field 
goals and six fouls. 

For the season closer last Saturday night, Rider College from Trenton, New 
Jersey, was the visiting team, bowing to give the Valley its eleventh victory by a 
score of 65-55, as Hank Van de Water led the way with 20 points. Barry Skaler, in 
his last game of a great career, scored 1 1 points and was at his usual defensive best. 
The "little guy with the big heart" attempted to close with a wild finish, and suc- 
ceeded beyond all expectations. Steve Wisler contributed 17 points and Hi Fitzgerald 
added another 11. The Dutchmen ended their season with an 11-9 record, the best 
since the 13-8 produced during the 1955-56 season. 


This evening marks the opening of the Middle Atlantic States Collegiate Ath- 
letic Conference Wrestling Tournament with Lebanon Valley as the host college. 
Twenty-two colleges and universities from five states will vie for the team cham- 
pionship and more than 150 wrestlers will grapple for individual titles. Wilkes 
College, last year's champs, will be out to defend their title, but will receive stiff 
competition from Bucknell, Temple, Delaware, Hofstra, Moravian and Lafayette. 
LV's hopes lie in an unlimited title for Ken Longnecker, Dave Miller in the 167 
pound class (if he can overcome his shoulder injury), and Paul Longreen at 177 
pounds. Jay Kreider, the 147 pound aspirant, should go a long way in his division.

JV's leading scorer and throughout the season alternated between varsity and junior 
varsity. The JV's showed some excellent potential this season and with a little 
experience they should be of great value to Lebanon Valley in years to come.

Dips Bow To Valley 
At Lancaster, 65-62 

Coming from behind with only a few 
minutes left to play, the Lebanon Valley 
Flying Dutchmen defeated the Franklin 
and Marshall Diplomats 65-62 on Febru 
ary 26 at the Lancaster Armory. De- 
spite Jim Weinstein's 30 points, the Val- 
ley managed to stay in the game and 
edged out the misfortuned Dips for the 
tenth victory of the season. 

In the first half, it was Glen Coates 
with a 13 point barrage that put the 
Valley in the lead. At first they couldn't 
get started, and over six minutes passed 
before Steve Wisler made the first field 
goal. The Dutchmen fought back and 
finally, on a jump shot by Coates, tied 
the score 19-19. With three and a half 
minutes to go, the score was again tied 
24-24, and with the help of Weinstein's 
seven straight points, the two teams were 
even at the half at 33-33. 

Following a half time dispute over an 
extra field goal awarded to F & M, the 
officials declared the score to be 33-31, 
in favor of LVC. 

F & M went out in front early in the 
second half until a Van de Water field 
goal tied it up at 49 points. The score 
was again tied at 54 and then 56 on a 
goal by Art Forstater. F & M's Jack 
Seville added two shots and Weinstein 
sank two fouls to put the Dips in front 
62-61 with less than a minute left in the 
game. But Van de Water hit on a long 
jumper to put the Valley a point ahead. 
Seconds later, Barry Skaler was fouled 
and converted both shots of the one-and- 
one situation to give the Dutchmen their 
final points and their final three point 

Jim Weinstein, F & M center, led all 
scorers with 30 points on 12 field goals 
and six fouls but no other Diplomat 
player had double figures. For LVC, 
Glenn Coates hit his season high of 20 
while Hank Van de Water added 15. Bar- 
ry Skaler and Art Forstater netted 14 
and 13 respectively. 

LVC Defeats Rough Riders 
65-55 To Finish Season 11-9 

In their final game of the season, the 
Lebanon Valley Flying Dutchmen defeat- 
ed the Rider College five, 65-55 on Feb- 
ruary 27. The Dutchmen ended their 
season with an 11-9 record, their best 
since the 1955-56 season which reaped a 
13-8 mark. 

Hank Van de Water, the season's high 
point man, led all scoring with 20 points 
and Steve Wisler followed with 17. Barry 
Skaler, in his last college appearance at 
Valley, tallied 11 points and was the 
mainstay of the Valley defense. Hi Fitz- 
gerald also added 11 points. 

Going ahead in the opening minutes of 
the game, the Dutchmen never trailed 
until early in the second half when the 
Rough Riders tied the score at 40-40 on 
a field goal by Bill Gramlich. The rest 
of the way was nip and tuck but behind 
the shooting of Van de Water, Skaler, 
Wisler and Fitzgerald, the Valley over- 
came the late Rider surge to finish 10 
points ahead.

Bullets Bow To 
Dutchmen, 67-64 

In one of their outstanding perform- 
ances of this season, the Lebanon Valley 
Flying Dutchmen defeated Gettysburg 
College 67-64 on February 13. Fresh 
from a 98-57 upset over the powerful 
Wagner quintet, the Bullets found the 
Dutchmen unimpressed. Hi Fitzgerald 
led the way with 19 points, tallying 16 in 
the first half. At half time, LV led 37-34. 

Gettysburg caught up to the Valley on 
a field goal by John Fitzkee, tying the 
score at 42 points. Ron Warner and Bob 
Parker carried the load for Gettysburg 
in the second half. The score was again 
tied at 50-50 with Parker and Fitzgerald 
exchanging goals, but from then on, 
Valley remained in the lead as Barry 
Skaler, Hank Van de Water and Glenn 
Coates added the remaining tallies to 
stave off a combined Warner-Parker 
splurge of points.

Dutchmen Defeat 
Drexel Champs 

Outdoing their Saturday night per- 
formance of February 13 against Gettys- 
burg, the Flying Dutchmen on Monday, 
February 15, defeated the recently 
crowned Middle Atlantic Champions, 
Drexel Tech, by a score of 74-64. Sayre 
Junior High School, Philadelphia, was: 
the site of the upset. The Dutchmen, 
hitting on 30 of 58 shots, completely 
dominated the game. All five starters hit 
for double figures with Hi Fitzgerald 
and Hank Van de Water equally splitting 
34 points and Steve Wisler and Art For- 
stater netting 14 apiece. Backcourt ace 
Barry Skaler tallied 11. The rebounding 
of Hank Van de Water, Steve Wisler, and 
Hi Fitzgerald held the host team in check 
off both boards. Wisler's second half 
bombardment, 7-8 from the floor, caught 
Drexel off guard. Valley's foul shooting, 
14-19, was the important factor in the 

Starting with Fitzgerald's lay-up in 
the opening seconds, the Dutchmen went 
out ahead and never trailed. With 2:48 
remaining in the game, Valley held a 22 
point edge but Coach Marquette sent in 
his reserves and the final deficit was nar- 
rowed to 10 points.

where i was a writer and a painter and a 
real cool bongos player i guess you 
would call me sort of a beatnik i used 
to wear dirty black slacks and a turtle 
reck sweater and i never washed and i 
never shaved and i never worked and i

then one day this guy comes along to 
this espresso house where i hang out and 
he was dressed up like a president or 
something and he says listen kid you 
should not be wasting your life in this 
hole doing nothing. 

get out in this world he says and make 
something of yourself and go to college 
and be somebody so i packed up my bon- 
gos and i took a bath and i applied at 
princeton and they accepted me and so i 
started getting ready for my college ca- 

i went out and bought continental suits 
and shirts with button down collars and 
narrow ties and genuine cobra skin shoes 
and a jaguar and went to dances and 
mingled and practiced togetherness and i 
decided boy now i have really made the 
scene i am accepted. 

now they call me a conformist.

Panel Recommends 
Chapel Improvements 

The SCA meeting for the evaluation 
of chapel took place in Philo Hall, Wed- 
nesday, February 24. A panel composed 
of Dr. Bemesderfer, Dr. Ehrhart, Don 
Harper, and Joe Coen represented vari- 
ous viewpoints on chapel procedure. Stu- 
dents in attendance were able to question 
the panelists and offer further suggest- 

Dr. Bemesderfer began by relating 
briefly the history of chapel at LVC. 
He said that chapel has always been 
compulsory and he recalled the time 
when five chapel sessions per week were 
held, with one cut allowed per week. 

Don Harper expressed his disapproval 
of compulsory chapel because of his feel- 
ing that the purpose of chapel, if that 
purpose be worship, is thereby defeated. 
Were facilities available, he said, he 
would favor voluntary chapel with a new 
incentive for attendance being offered. 
He felt that a sharp line should be drawn 
between assemblies and services for wor- 

Joe Coen asserted his belief that stu- 
dents would attend chapel willfully, 
whether it were compulsory or not, if 
speakers and topics were more interest- 
ing. He suggested that this improvement 
could be the "new incentive" proposed 
by Harper. In view of the fact that it 
seems to be customary to invite certain 
similar types of speakers week after 
week, Coen asked how speakers for cha- 
pel are chosen. 

Budget Must Be Considered 

Dr. Ehrhart informed the group that 
speakers must be chosen within the limi- 
tations of the budget. It shoud be re- 
membered, he said, that the student acti- 
vity fee is not used for chapel; an ad- 
ministrative allotment is advanced for 
the purpose. Also, courtesy to local 
ministers, alumni, and others connected 
with the college is extended. However, 
I Dr. Ehrhart confirmed an observation 
i that the majority of chapel guests have 
not been representing the EUB Church. 

Several students who were present con- 
tended that efforts should be made to ob- 
tain famous-name speakers such as theo- 
logian Paul Tillich and the much-sought- 
after Martin Luther King. Dr. Ehrhart, 
however, pointed out that even top-name 
speakers would be no panacea for the 
chapel problem, especially in the realm 
of cost. He agreed with a statement that 
we must not assume that only these 
high-priced personalities have worthwhile 
messages. It was also pointed out that 
in the light of past efforts to invite noted 
speakers to the campus, it was found that 
an advance arrangement of three or four 
years was necessary in most cases. 
Stereotyped Topics Criticized 

Topics were a matter of con- 
cern to the group and to the panel. 
It is usual, the group agreed, for 
speakers to direct speeches into a cer- 
tain stereotyped vein of thinking, with 
little cognizance of the differences 
in religious background and experiences 
of the members of the audience. It was 
lamented by some that controversial top- 
ics and unconventional viewpoints are 
usually ignored in chapel programs. Oth- 
ers felt that such topics should be dealt 
with in an assembly-type program rather 
than in a worship service. 

In conclusion, several miscellaneous 
ideas were proposed: (1) There should be 
more relationship between chapel speech- 
es and campus life, (2) a continuity (by 
means of a series of programs on the 
various aspects of one topic) would per- 
haps be more meaningful, (3) young 
ministers more closely related to college 
life should be invited, and (4) a chapel 
program committee consisting of the 
chaplain, several faculty members, and a 
cross-section of students should be or-

The State vs. 
A Child's Happiness 

There is a little girl living in Old Bridge, New Jersey, today. She is living 
with the people she loves most, the only real family she has ever known. She has 
two little sisters to play with and grow up with, and a mother and father who would 
be willing to go to any extremes to safeguard her welfare. And she is unaware that 
for the past two years, until a few weeks ago, the secure world she has always 
known was threatened, thrown in jeopardy by her own good fortune. 

Alice is a very lucky girl; she is not yet five years old, but has already dis- 
played talents which give her an IQ rating of 138. No one was fully aware of her 
potential when, at the age of ten months, the Foster Parents Program of New Jersey 
entrusted her to an Old Bridge couple for an indefinite period of time. 

Foster parents are not screened as carefully as are couples seeking outright 
adoption, and it was explained that little Alice might never be available for adoption 
since the welfare agency was attempting to rehabilitate her real mother. But in 
1958, Alice became a ward of the State, and the board thought it best that she be 
placed with permanent parents. Her foster parents made application. 

By this time, the child's unusual intellectual capacities were making themselves 
known, and it was decided that Alice's $120-a-week steelworking "father" could not 
provide the economic and cultural advantages such a child deserves. Claiming that 
Alice was growing up m a television-centered atmosphere, the board rejected the 
application, and the foster parents took the case to court. 

After a two-year struggle the board has reversed its decision, and Alice may 
soon become the legal daughter of the only parents she can remember. But it took 
an appeal to the nation's second highest court and massive public opinion to bring 
this change about. This couple, once considered fit and capable guardians, is now 
also deemed worthy of the lifetime guidance of a very promising young lady. 

No one can judge the advantages of any given social situation as opposed to 
another. Perhaps the welfare agency considered it a duty to attempt to provide the 
finest of advantages to young Alice. And yet, it is impossible to judge the limitless 
value of maturing in a home filled with love. Perhaps Alice will never ride in a 
limousine; perhaps she will never wear the finest of silk or satin, or be presented to 
society at her own debutante's ball. 

She will, however, develop as an important member of a conscientious family, 
among people who want and love her for her own sake. All the books and piano 
lessons and so-called social and cultural "advantages" in the world can never replace 
the security necessary for well-rounded growth. When the state is granted the power 
to decide such matters, democracy as well as human liberty will have reached a 
low ebb. (PHR) 


Stepped-up educational programs in the high schools are producing students 
who are increasingly better prepared for college, and colleges in turn face the 
problems of revamping which this is bound to bring about. Students will be entering 
freshman classes already equipped with the material usually offered in first-year 
college courses, if the advanced high school systems accomplish their purpose. 

Although the problems may not be widespread now, it is certain that they will 
appear within the next few years as more and more secondary schools adopt educa- 
tional augmentations of some kind. Colleges will then be obliged to offer a greater 
challenge to incoming freshmen. 

In view of these statements, it is heartening to learn of the committee recently 
formed by Pennsylvania's Governor Lawrence in an effort to study the situation and 
present suggestions for revisory measures. Represented on the committee are 
educators, teachers, and others from all parts of the state who will try to evaluate 
realistically all parts of the state's educational facilities and practices from kinder- 
garten through the college level. 

Spurred on by new discoveries in all of the sciences as well as by world compe- 
tition, a kind of renaissance seems to be underway which, although slow in emerging 
from a cocoon of tradition, is finally upon us. It has found expression in the school 
systems and seeks fulfillment in places of higher learning. Educators now find 
themselves faced with confusion in deciding where the main emphasis in education 
will be placed, who should receive what kind of instruction, and what qualifications 
should be required of teachers. 

As future citizens, teachers and parents, it will be our duty to prepare ourselves 
for the coming challenge, seek to fill our places in the new enlightenment, and work 
to channel the modern educational efforts in the wisest directions. We can help to 
smooth the way for progress if we recognize the problems it will incite and resolve 
to meet them intelligently. (JMK) 

Letters To La Vie 

Strong Backs Wanted 

Dear Editors of La Vie: 

I would like to tell you about a project 
which we have in mind for the weekend 
of April 8, 9 and 10. We are going to 
work with the Friends' Neighborhood 
Committee in Philadelphia in helping 
some members of an interracial commu- 
nity to fix up their homes with paint and 

The project starts on Friday night with 
a discussion of the neighborhood and its 
particular problems, including some dis- 
cussions about the persons whom the 
students will be meeting in the morning 
and some practical tips on painting and 
plastering. Then, after packing box 
lunches for Saturday, the students will 
bed down somewhere in the church 
which has been chosen as a center of 

Pairs to Paint and Plaster 
On Saturday morning the students will 
set out in pairs with their ladders, paints 
and plastering equipment to begin work. 
Each couple will be given the name and 
address of a family which has asked for 
this kind of help in the home, and each 
family has agreed to provide someone to 
work with the students. The purpose of 
this project is not to provide painters 
and plasterers for a day's free work for 
the poor, but to help people to help 
themselves fix up their homes. 

Saturday evening we will go to an In- 
ternational House where students from 
other countries will teach us some of 
their folk dances, games and songs and 
give us a party.- On Sunday morning we 
will arise early enough to attend Magis- 
trate Court to view the problems of the 
city in this area. Here, the minor crim- 
inal cases (such as drunkenness, larcency 
and juvenile cases) are brought before 
the judiciary. 

No Vacation of Fun 
This is an open project with a total 
cost of $3.75 per student plus whatever 
it costs for travel. We do not want any 
students who are simply out for a good 
time and do not want to work. Nor do 
we want students who are afraid to work 
in a slum section in which the white race 
is definitely in the minority. 

On the other hand, this is a wonderful 
chance for interested students to honestly 
face the problems of a city, to give ser- 
vice, and to learn at the same time. This 
experience will more than likely be quite 
different from anything which most stu- 
dents have encountered. 

Those who are interested should see 
me before April 4, for I must have an 
accurate count by that time.

Correction, Please 

The Men's Senate has brought to the 
attention of the editors the fact that, 
unknown to nearly everyone, the hangers 
in the lobby of the College Dining Hall 
were a private donation and therefore 
not the responsibility of the dining hall 

We appreciate this information and 
express regret that blame was directed 
toward the committee. The Senate has 
further stated that the hangers allegedly 
spirited from the lobby by Valley stu- 
dents are being confiscated by the Sena- 

La Vie commends the dining hall com- 
mittee for its immediate response to the 
request for replacement of the hangers; 
we are happy that the problem has been 
taken care of so satisfactorily.

Political Science Club Will Hold 
Presidential Preference Primary 

Get out and vote! The Political Sci- 
ence Club will hold a primary election 
of candidates for President of the United 
States in the Lebanon Valley chapel pro- 
gram Tuesday, March 29. Over 21 or 
under, this is your chance to select a 
leading Democratic or Republican can- 
didate. Later in April another election 
will be held to determine the winner of 
the contest for position of our nation's 

It is hard to find a magazine or news- 
paper in this campaign year which does 
not have at least one article on the pend- 
ing national election. College students, 
"informed young minds," "future leaders 
of America" though we are, too few of 
us really take time to read any of these 
articles in an attempt to understand the 
men and the issues. Humphrey, John- 
son, Rockefeller, Kennedy, Morse, Nix- 
on, Stevenson(?) — take your pick, but do 
pick. Before choosing the candidate, 
however, it is wise to read about more 
than one of the possibilities. Perhaps it 
would be a good idea to begin now by 
reading the selections and the reasons 
behind them as expressed by a few stu- 
dents in this La Vie survey. 

J. Lee McCaulley: "Nixon. He's had 
training by Ike. The job Ike failed to do, 
he did. Moreover, Nixon has prestige 
abroad. He's a good guy, I like him, and 
I think it's time we had a professional 
politician in office." 

Bill Rigler: "Stevenson or Humphrey. 
I prefer Stevenson because he's an ideal 
candidate. I suppose, however, that I'll 
settle for Humphrey because it doesn't 
seem that Stevenson is going to be a 
candidate this year. Stevenson is intel- 
lectually suited, and he's a liberal. Of 
course, I'm a Democrat. Humphrey is in 
the same category as Adlai. We need a 
strong leader, and either man would fit 
that need." 

Elaine Walters: "Nixon. I feel that 
Nixon is suited for the presidency be- 
cause he has visited many countries. His 
contacts with different people help him 

Qive Marian c4 Chance 

Marian the LVC Librarian needs your 
cooperation, lest she become a patrol- 
man. LVC library-goers need to muffle 
their activities in Gossard Memorial if 
they want to stay on Marian's good 
side, says the Student-Faculty Council. 
Students causing a disturbance among the 
stacks will be asked to leave the library, 
according to a recent measure passed by 
the Council after consultation with Dr. 

to know their situations. His service in 
the capacity of Vice President will help 
as will the guidance of President Eisen- 

Steve Waldman: "Kennedy or Steven- 
son. Kennedy comes closest to being the 
statesman-president that we need. How- 
ever, I would prefer Stevenson if he 
would run again." 

Annette Kurr: "Nixon. I feel that he 
is most qualified for he has gone through 
many crises with President Eisenhower. 

Jerry Haupt: "I don't particularly fol- 
low it that much although I think Ken- 
nedy and Nixon are the major candi- 
dates. Kennedy is as good as anyone. 
I don't go along with the religious-limi- 
tations idea." 

Ruth Ranck: "Nixon. I favor him be- 
cause he's a Republican and because I 
approve of all he has done. He has 
really tried and has risen above the ob- 
scurity of his office. He's a strong man." 

Jane Levine: "Kennedy. He is well 
suited and will make a good president. 
Religion should have no place in presi- 
dential elections."

Dutch Flier 

by Fred Meisebnan 

Cold weather and persistent snow have forced the Lebanon Valley track and 
field team to carry on their pre-season workouts indoors. Except for daily cross- 
country jaunts by the runners, all conditioning is confined to the gym area. The 
main gym is being utilized by the runners while the high jumpers and shot putters 
are employing the mat-covered auxiliary gym. 

Ellis R. McCracken, athletic director and football coach, takes over the track 
duties replacing Ned Linta who is now serving as athletics director at the National 
Agricultural College in Doylestown. Coach McCracken hopes to improve on last 
year's 2-4 record and with the team on hand, should have no difficulty in doing so. 
The first meet will be against Franklin and Marshall at Annville and the Valley 
is going into it with a two-meet winning streak on the line, having defeated Muh- 
lenberg and Ursinus in the two final meets of last season. All nine lettermen from 
last year's squad are returning. They are: Les Holstein, Vern Magnuson, Don 
Zechman, Ralph Earp, Ken Longenecker, Carl Rife, Fred Meiselman, Dick Harper, 
and Dave Mulholland. Aside from these lettermen, there is a crop of experienced 
boys from last year's team and a good number of freshmen that show promise. 

In the dashes, Les Holstein, Vern Magnuson, and Don Zechman will lead the 
field. Zechman, team co-captain, may see service only in the 220, skipping the 
hundred in order to move up to the 440. Holstein and Magnuson should have little 
difficulty in placing in the hundred and with the addition of Zechman, the 220 is 
another of the Valley's events. Sophomore Roger Ward and freshman John Det- 
weiler will press all three sprinters for places and they possibly will get into the 
point column. 

Ralph Earp, a sophomore, is LV's hopes in the quarter mile and half mile 
events. Ralph was very close to the 50-flat mark last year and with the 440 com- 
petition as it is this year, he should go under it. Don Zechman is a powerful runner- 
up to Earp in the one-lap grind. Don stuck to the short sprints last year but has two 
years of previous experience in the longer race. Don Drumheller and John Det- 
weiler round out the quarter mile field and both are capable of placing. If Earp 
can overcome the exhaustion brought on by the 440 he should be a threat in the 
half mile. Drumheller and Detweiler will again back him up in the 880. 

The mile and two-mile have been a yearly problem for the Dutchmen. This 
year, the outcome is still uncertain. Carl Rife, last year's distance man, has been 
struck off the list with a case of chronic appendicitis. Last season, Carl took to 
the cinders for the first time, and with hard work and determination, moved into 
the number one spot. His best time was in the low 4:40's and he placed in most of 
the meets. Whether Jim Heath, in his first year of track competition, can take up 
where Carl left off is uncertain as he hasn't run against the clock yet. But by the 
way he is pushing himself now, it looks as if he'll be able to make the grade(s). 
Another hope will be Mike Gephart, who has agreed to move up from his 440 spot 
to help out in the longer races. A number of other freshmen are trying out for the 
distances, and if they too materialize, the situation in these two events will be 
better than it has been. 

Field Events 

Les Holstein is the only reliable starter in the high hurdles. Coach McCracken 
is trying to work on some other boys to interest them in the extremely difficult 
event, but the prospects are dim. At any rate, Holstein and Vern Magnuson take 
the lows in most meets and the event is not much of a problem. 

In the jumping events, Dick Harper and Les Holstein lead the pole vault. Har- 
per set a new school record of 11 '6" last year while Holstein was close behind. 

Prof. Hollinger 
Receives Ph.D. 

Henry B. Hollinger, assistant professor 
of chemistry, has been awarded the de- 
gree of Doctor of Philosophy at the Uni- 
versity of Wisconsin. 

Dr. Hollinger completed his work at 
the Theoretical Chemistry Laboratory at 
the University in August, 1959. His the- 
sis, "The Boltzman Equation in Non- 
equilibrium Statistical Mechanics," was 
published by the University as a Theo- 
retical Chemistry Laboratory Publication. 

A graduate of Lebanon Valley College 
in 1955, Dr. Hollinger returned to his 
alma mater as a member of the faculty 
in 1959. 

Otto Quale Conducts 
Yearbook Clinic For 
High School Editors 

Otto W. Quale, Director of Publica- 
tions for the American Yearbook Com- 
pany, conducted the second annual Year- 
book Clinic on the Lebanon Valley cam- 

Approximately 100 high school editors 
and their advisers attended this clinic 
Wednesday, March 16. Yearbook plan- 
ning and content, yearbook layout, pho- 
tography, artwork and its purpose, copy 
writing and fitting and its purposes, staff 
organization, and financing the yearbook 
were among the topics discussed. 

Besides the student discussions special 
sessions were held for the advisers under 
the leadership of Neal Layser. 

SEA Invites Guest 
Speaker On Testing 

"Guidance and Testing in the Public 
Schools" will be the theme for the March 
3 1 meeting of the Gossard Chapter of the 
Student Pennsylvania State Education 

Mr. John Hughes from the California 
In addition, John Kobylarz, competing for the first time last year, should go well Test Bureau will be the speaker of the 
over the 10-foot mark and garnish points for LVC. In the high jump, Dave Mul- evening. He will discuss testing's place, 
holland is the leader. Dave should reach his potential this year and go well its use, and what actually is being done 
over the 6-foot height. Helping him out will be Holstein, Harper, and John Stam- j with the results. The meeting will take 
bach. Although the Valley has two excellent broad jumpers in Vern Magnuson 1 place in Philo Hall of the Administration 
and Les Holstein, their lack of practice time last year cut down their ability and Building beginning at 7:00 p.m. 

consequently, they were fouling on about 75% of their tries. This year they will 
make it a point to improve their steps and capture places in the jump. Ralph 
Earp also takes to the air in this oft-neglected event at the Valley. 

In the weight events, LV should be stronger than ever. In the shot put, co- 
captain Fred Meiselman will attempt to win points for the Dutchmen. The ques- 
tionable status of Ken Longenecker, due to the pending decision on his pro-football 
contract, leaves an unfilled gap. If Longenecker should compete, the situation 
would be even brighter. Hi Fitzgerald should go well over the 40 foot mark this 
year to gain points. Meiselman and Longenecker also hold down the discus events 
and will be a hard-to-beat one-two combination. Last year, the javelin was an 
extremely poor event for Valley although the Ursinus meet was excitingly won by 
Vern Magnuson's second-place heave in the closing minutes. But this year, the 
Dutchmen will have positively no trouble in the javelin. Pete Wagner, a freshman 
from Hummelstown, is the answer. Last year, as a high-school senior, Pete won the 
Districts, Regionals, States and Shippensburg Invitational meets, all with record- 
breaking tosses. His 204-feet-plus throw at the State Meet gave him a state record 
and a place on the National All-American High School Track Team. With the 
incentive of Wagner, Vern Magnuson should go over 160 feet to gain places in all 
the meets. 

Well, that's the team, probably the best ever assembled at LVC. Coach 
McCracken and the members of the squad are working to live up to their potential. 
As the season progresses, they will improve, but the present weather conditions 
have hampered their efforts. 


Like the track squad, the Lebanon Valley baseball team has had to make use 
of the gym for practices. The players are limited to throwing and running and 
occasional batting practice with "whiffle" balls. Coach Frank Etchberger feels that 
the team should greatly improve on last year's record of 4-8 with the return of 
nine lettermen and a host of new freshmen. The first game is against Gettysburg 
on April 2 on the LVC diamond. 

Handling the pitching chores will be Russ Urey, co-captain Bob Stull, Dick 
Blair, Steve Wisler, Fred Porrino, and John Yajko. Urey, a lefty, will lead the 
mound staff, while the return of Wisler after a year's layoff should greatly bolster 
the hurlers. Bob Stull will also be a chief starter while Dick Blair will handle 
the relief chores. Porrino and Yajko are both freshmen and their ability has not 
yet been determined due to the poor weather. 

Behind the plate, Brooks Slatcher will return to call the pitches. Brooks is a 
long ball hitter and one of the team's leading batsmen. At present, he is the only 
experienced catcher that Coach Ethcberger has on hand and the services of a few 
freshmen will be needed here. 

In the infield, track star Les Holstein leads the candidates while freshman

In the outfield, the prospects have improved since last year. Co-captain Carl 
Wesolowski mans the right field post while the other captain Bob Stull will play 
center when not pitching. Left field will be occupied by Gene Stambach, who 
might also do double duty with the track team as a high jumper. But basically he 
will stick to baseball. John Yajko is the most promising substitute for an outfield 
post while Russ Urey can also fill in a spot. The hitting of the outfielders is 
exceptionally good. Bob Stull, as a freshman, led the team in hitting last year 
with a .368 average. Wesolowski gets the base hits while freshman Yajko comes 
in with a good hitting reputation. Also in the batting department, catcher Brooks 
Slatcher, with a .342 percentage last year, is being counted on again this year to 
get the hits and runs. 

The outlook of the team is good. The chances of going over the .500 mark 
are good but with the weather the way it has been, the players will have to work 
extra hard to be ready for a tough schedule. 


Hoping to better last year's record of six wins and three losses, the Lebanon 
Valley tennis team takes to the courts with possibly the finest tennis talent ever 
assembled at LV. Mr. Reynaldo Rovers will serve as coach and faculty director 
of the squad which will have its first match against Gettysburg College April 2 
at the opponents' court. 

Co-captain and number one man will be Howie Good, who compiled a 6-3 
individual record. Good should improve on his credible record and again lead the 
team to an outstanding season. 

Ron Bell will probably play second man for the Dutchmen. Bell's net game 
is his strong point. Bell and Good team-up to form the number one doubles team 
that earned an outstanding 8-1 log last year. Larry Srait is in the third position 
and could give Bell a tussle for second place. Strait, along with fourth man Bob 
Musser, earned 8-1 individual records to lead the team in that department. They 
also combine to form the number two doubles team. 

The two remaining places will be battled for by returning lettermen Bob 
Wayne Eichel will fill in while Holstein competes in track meets. The second , Kilmoyer and Fred Eckelman and outstanding freshmen Terry Myers and Norman 
base, short-stop, and third base position are toss-ups with Harry Yost, Mark Wert, ! Erg, among others. 

J ack Shaeffer, Herman Meyer, and Bob Stull being capable of filling in any of Home matches are played at Coleman's Park in Lebanon while practices are 
these spots. At any rate, whatever combination does play will be a good fielding held on the asphalt courts on the athletic fields. All in all, the 1960 tennis team's 
a nd reliable hitting combo. Wert, Shaeffer, and Meyer are all freshmen and have prospects are bright — brighter than ever. There is no doubt as to the quality of 
outstanding recommendations from their high school coaches. the players and a winning season is inevitable.

Etiquette And You 

Would it were that we had no etiquette 
problems; but, living as we do in the 
fast-paced social metropolis of Annville, 
which, with its gala whirl of festivities 
introduces a new social situation daily, 
these littie ... are bound to crop up. And 
so, we bring to you world-famed, world- 
traveled, and world-worn counselor, Em- 
» ily Schmost, to place you on the road to 
gracious living among Annville's young 
social set. 

Mrs. Artemus Q. Hardwell 
Windy Acres, Boredom, Mass. 
February 31, 1960 

Dear Mrs. Schmost: 

I have oft read of your unsurpassed 
ingenuity concerning the tasteful place- 
ment of antiques in the modest Ameri- 
. can home. To understand my problem, 
you must first realize that our home is 
by no means large or elaborate. It was 
formerly our summer woodland retreat, 
made livable only by the complete re- 
building of the main house and servant's 
quarters and the addition of twenty extra 
rooms and a veranda to the east wing. 
. . . But I digress. Allow me to return 
to the problem at hand. 

It concerns a delicate and charming 
cherry provincial desk, given me by my 
husband's late great-aunt, Lucy Hard- 
well, of the Beacon Hill Hardwells. I be- 
lieve the Hardwell clan has been men- 
tioned in your publication before. The 
entire Hardwell family is of Old New 
England Stock, and thus you can under- 
stand the great provinciality of this desk, 
and our well-modulated concern over it. 

To get to the crux of the matter swift- 
ly, I find myself without a room design- 
ed expressly for cherry provincial desks. 
There is the Victorian Room, and the 
Empire Room, and, of course, the Early 
American log cabin which my husband 
Artemus constructed especially for my 
pioneer sewing basket; but would my 
cherry provincial truly blend in with 
any of these settings? 

There is the library, of course, but this 
is such an informal room, as it is where 
my husband sits before the fire with his 
hunting dogs, relaxing after his hard day 
at Wall Street. There is one more possi- 
bility, which lies in the use of a loft over 
one of our stables, but I fear that some 
of our high-spirited steeds may kick in 
the secret cherry provincial panels with 
the reverberations of their beating hoofs. 

There, in a nutshell, is my problem. I 
have given you but a brief resume, and 
hope that you may, perchance, conceive 
of an idea which will solve my dilemma. 
Yours in antiquity, 
Hepzibah Hardwell 

Dear H. H. 

May I suggest that you get rid of the 
thing by delivering it into the hands of 
some unsuspecting college library? You'll 
be so glad you did. 

Yours in boredom, 

Emily Schmost 

Three Students Attend 
Citizenship Conference 

Three students attended the student 
conference of the Eastern Pennsylvania 
Citizenship Clearing House on the cam- 
pus of the University of Pennsylvania, 
March 18 and 19. 

Harold Miller, Kenneth Seaman, and 
Philip Feather, all seniors, were accom- 
panied to the annual gathering by Mr. 
Alex Fehr, assistant professor of political 

Featured speakers at the conference 
were representatives of the Republican 
and Democratic parties who gave key- 
note addresses preliminary to the discus- 
sion of the forthcoming national conven- 
tions of the major political parties. May- 
or Richardson Dilworth of Philadelphia 
spoke on "The Democratic Challenge, 
I960;" the Hon. Thomas B. Curtis, U. S. 
Representative from Missouri, spoke on 
"The Republican Challenge, I960." 

Panel meetings, with panel members 
representing the political conventions, va- 
rious colleges and universities, newspa- 
pers, and radio, were a major part of 
the conference. 


"&>W!Y about veevswM.ft&s Utoir— ife JUST THAT \AT 
vatf eeiom me a girl b^oiibo in n* engineering oass/ 


(ACP)— From the Oregon State Col- 
lege DAILY BAROMETER comes this 
tale of woe about the professor who 
grimly watched as 42 red-faced students 
left his 8 a.m. class recently. 

The quiz they had just completed be- 
gan in the accepted manner with direc- 
tions — verbose ones. Nothing unusual ex- 
cept for the last line which directed that 
the whole quiz be read before any part 
was answered. 

Near the end of the quiz, however, 
more directions appeared instructing that 
the last few questions only be answered 
and no others. 

Forty-two students took the quiz; 42 
students did not follow instructions; 42 
students did a double take. A few tried 
to salvage a grade by hasty x-ing out un- 
wanted answers. A few used an eraser. 
But only a few, for the wiley prof had 
innocently asked that pen be used in- 
stead of the usual pencil. 

The professor apparently made his 
point, but he influenced people without 
winning friends. 

So Where's The Grass? 

Spring has sprung and winter has 
wrung. That's about the extent of our 
poetic ability. 

But dauntlessly we shall continue. 
Spring always causes the poets to ex- 
claim romantically of this gentle season. 
Writers, anxious for new angles to cover 
the perennial event, wrack their feeble 
brains for novel ways to herald March 

What is written about Spring has been 
heard before and, if the poor writer can't 
conjure any new phrases, he will prob- 
ably plagiarize. We won't plagiarize, but 
then, we won't say anything very astute 

How did the LVC student welcome 
Spring? He probably didn't. We doubt 
if any one jumped out of bed at 4 a.m. 
Sunday and joyously greeted the early 
morning. And if anyone had tried to 
awaken him, we'll bet the sleeper only 
snorted at his zealous awaker, "What 
are you? Some kind of a nut?!" 

Anyway, for everyone's information, 
Spring will continue until June when 
Summer arrives. Then we go through 
Fall and Winter and back to Spring. 
Just shows what a college education can 
do for you. 

So far, over 170 words have been dedi- 
cated to the season's arrival. We hope 
that will pacify it and encourage it to 
return next year (we can't be too sure 
about anything nowadays, you know). So 
let's all roar out a big, "Welcome, 

That's over for another year, thank 
heavens. (NN) 

Increases Facilities 

Considerable progress is apparent in 
LVC's foreign language department, and 
La Vie wishes to bring this to the atten- 
tion of all the students as another facet 
of the academic program in which stu- 
dents can take pride. 

This year the foreign language depart- 
ment received new equipment in order to 
aid students in obtaining more and better 
skills in a particular language study. 

So far a stereo recorder and three 
magneticon machines are available for 
use. The magneticons are machines 
which record the student's voice by mag- 
netic means on a plastic record which 
can be purchased in the book store. The 
records can be erased and reused for an 
indefinite number of times. 

The department has a good beginning 
in a language laboratory. The recorders 
benefit students who wish to achieve a 
good pronunciation and a workable speak- 
ing knowledge of a foreign language. 
They multiply what a professor can 
teach by enabling the class to listen indi- 
vidually to native speakers and to profes- 
sional linguists skilled in German, 
French, or Spanish. Through speaking 
and listening consistently to one's voice, 
one can train the vocal cords and gain 
experience in the mechanics of a lan- 
guage. Fifteen-minute periods of this 
type of study is the best kind of prac- 

The professors of foreign languages 
are looking forward to a more expanded 
program in the near future. Next year it 
is hoped that a tape recorder will be 
added to the facilities at the students'

Student Fee Covers 
Seven Major Areas 

Many students have expressed an in- 
terest in the coverage of the Student Ac- 
tivities Fee. The major items totaling 
$37.50 per student per semester are: 

Health Center $ 6.25 

General Athletics 12.50 

Field and Gym 375 

Women's Athletics . . . .625 

Student-Faculty 8.75 

Lounge 5.00 

Other 4.00 

A further description of these cate- 
gories seems necessary. The health cen- 
ter is self-explanatory. Athletics covers 
varsity sports; field and gym is a non- 
varsity area and includes maintenance 
and rent of the Lebanon YMCA pool. 
The Student-Faculty portion is handled 
by the students and covers the activities 
of the following organizations: Men's 
Day Student Association, Women's Com- 
muter Council, Jiggerboard, Men's Sen- 
ate, Quittie, La Vie, SCA, and the band. 

The lounge category covers the in- 
terest and principal on the loan for re- 
decoration and will be withdrawn when 
the loan is repaid. 

"Other" is a catch-all for emergency 
situations, social activities such as hon- 
orary societies which are not covered by 
fees and dues, maintenance overhead, in- 
tramurals (about $2.25 per student last 
year), deficits in one of the major items, 
and maintenance of the credit of the col- 

In the event of an excess of funds at 
the end of the year, although this has 
not occurred, it would not be used in oth- 
er areas of the college budget.

Dr. Neidig Attends 
Annual Convention 
Of Chem Teachers 

Dr. Howard A. Neidig, professor of 
chemistry at Lebanon Valley College, at- 
tended the Pennsylvania Association of 
College Chemistry Teacher's ninth an- 
nual convention held at Gettysburg Col- 
lege on April 1-2. He was one of eighty-

Annual Spring Music Festival Will Present 
Chorus, Orchestra And Symphonic Band 

Social Science Dept. 
To Air 'Animal Farm' 

The department of social science will 
sponsor the showing of "Animal Farm," 
an animated film cartoon version of 
George Orwell's satire on the history of 
the Soviet Union from the Bolshevik 
Revolution until the latter days of World 
War II. The film will be shown Mon- 
day, April 11, at 2:00 and 8:00 p.m. in 
the audio-visual room of the library. 

"Animal Farm" is a feature-length film 
with a running time of 75 minutes. It 
deals with the revolt of Farmer Jones' 
domesticated animals against their cruel 
master. Once the animals have seized 
power, they are taken over by the pigs, 
who represent the Communists in the 
Bolshevik Revolution and in the Soviet 
Union after the revolution. 

Napoleon, the leading pig who repre- 
sents Stalin, amends the revolutionary 
slogan "All animals are equal," by add- 
ing "but some animals are more equal 
than others." The liberated animals 
soon find that they have succeeded in 
exchanging one form of tyranny for an- 
other and once again they are forced to 
unite in a common cause. 

The film has all the fantasy of a Dis- 
ney cartoon with animals talking, read- 
ing, writing and possessing human at- 
tributes. The satire of Orwell's book is 
illustrated through pictorial representa- 

If the demand is sufficient, a further 
showing will take place Tuesday, April 
12, at 2:30 p.m. All students in Inte- 
grated Studies 30 are required to attend 
one of the showings. Other students, 
the faculty and staff are invited and en- 
couraged to attend. 

Three Students Attend 
Citizenship Conference 

Philip Feather, Harold Miller and Ken- 
neth Seaman attended the Annual Stu- 
dent Conference sponsored by the East-

This convention, which took place in 
the Christian Association Building in 
Philadelphia March 18 and 19, featured 
speakers from both political parties. Po- 
litical leaders spoke to the delegates at 
dinner meetings and in panel discussions. 
These students were accompanied by 
Alex J. Fehr, assistant professor of politi- 
cal science. 

Twelve El. Ed. Seniors 
Are Student Teaching 

At the present time there are twelve 
senior students from the elementary edu- 
cation department of Lebanon Valley 
College who are doing student teaching 
in nearby schools. This program for 
elementary teacher education enables the 
students to experience real classroom 
situations under the supervision of their 
critic teachers. 

The following students are teaching in 
nearby schools, under critic teachers: 
Ernest Barlow is teaching the sixth grade 
in the North Annville school district, 
with Mrs. Ulrich as his critic teacher.

Letters To La Vie 

To the editors of La Vie: 

As a result of careful observation on 
my part in the dining hall, I have come 
to the conclusion that there are just two 
qualifications necessary in order that a 
person may be appointed headwaiter. 

First, one must be financially inde- 
pendent; second, one must possess ab- 
solutely no experience as a waiter. In 
addition, it doesn't hurt if one drives a 
fairly new car. 

Whatever happened to the old policy 
of granting work positions to students 
who need money to pay their bills?

Although students of Valley's Education 20 course may not recall all of Prof 
McKlveen's jokes, they are sure to have at least one phrase stamped indelibly on 
their grey matter: "We've always done it that way!" Never is this sarcastic though 
resigned statement more fitting than at this time of year. In just one month, 
Valley's annual Spring Orgy will once again litter the campus with crepe paper 
and stately symbols of the mating urge. 

There is a great tradition at Lebanon Valley (and at many other schools as 
well). Every Spring, somewhere near the first of May, the students select their 
most appealing senior women whom they feel will most nearly embody the burst- 
ing spirit and youthful joy of Young America. They dress them in the finest of 
finery, parade them across the verdant fields in majestic grandeur, and crown them 
before the cheering throngs. Really now, what would the late Mr. Freud have to 
say about all this? 

There is always some central theme running through the entHfc program. Cap- 
tive girls' gym classes display their attributes in "interpretive" dances, their limbs 
flowing gracefully in rhythm (more or less) to music by the Concert Band, usually 
a fine aggregation, but severely hampered by being "sardined" on the porch of 
Kiester Hall. No pagan fertility rite was ever half so grand. 

Are visiting alumni and parents actually greatly impressed by such a dis- 
play? May Day could contain the following: concerts by any of our fine musical 
organizations; meaningful dramatic presentations by a campus theatre group; 
athletic demonstrations; art exhibits in the library; the list is endless. In past years 
these have been included to a small degree in the festivities, but the main emphasis 
is still placed upon our fair young sex symbols who trip lightly around the May 

Lebanon Valley has far more to offer to spectators than a glorified production 
of primeval impulses. When weeks of planning and rehearsing are poured into 
any endeavor, the program should be on a higher plane than simply an upgraded 
aboriginal ritual. We've always done it that way, but maybe it's time for a 
change. (PHR) 

Alma College Takes Action 
Against Academic Sliders 

(ACP)— Satisfaction with the once- 
fashionable "gentleman's C" appears to 
be giving way to serious thoughts about 
the "under achiever," reports the Alma 
College (Mich.) ALMANIAN. 

A new policy is currently in operation 
at Amherst College which seeks to solve 
the problem of said "under achiever." 
According to the ALMANIAN, Pres. 
Charles W. Cole of Amherst explained in 
his 1959 report to the board of trustees 
that the college has decided to grant 
these students a year's leave of absence 
"in hope that some months in another 
environment would give them enough 
added maturity and perspective so that 
they might return here and perform at a 
higher level." 

Fifty sophomores and juniors were 
suggested as possible under achievers in 
the middle of the last academic year. 
These students were informed of the 
college's new policy, conferences were 
held with faculty, administration and 
parents, and the students' performances 
were watched throughout the spring 

Of these, 12 were granted leaves, 14 
began to work up to capacity, 12 were 
found to be not laggards but students 
with limited intellectual ability, nine will 
have their record studied further and 
three withdrew voluntarily for one year. 

Although seniors were not included in 
the mandatory leave program, since the 
college felt it was too late to take action 
for them, it was noticed that about two- 
thirds of the seniors who had been coast- 
ing had definitely better records after 
the new policy was announced. 


Nikita Khrushchev said he disagrees 
with Christ only on the turn-the-other- 
cheek principle. 

"I believe in another principle." said 
the Soviet Premier. "If I am hit on the 
left cheek, I hit them back on the right 
cheek so strongly that the head may fall 

Taking him at his word, we wonder 
where in the New Testament Khrushchev 
found his inspiration for the Hungarian 
massacre. Perhaps he accidently mis- 
placed a comma so that the passage read : 

"Suffer, little children . . ."

Students Pleased By Hanged Rabbit, 
Wayward Volks wagon, Ad Infinitum 

by Connie Myers 

Hammer and sickle facing the library, 
swastikas scrawled on dormitory win- 
dows and draped above the dining hall 
doors, rockets set for launching from 
picnic tables, Volkswagons on mid-cam- 
pus, hanged rabbits on flagpoles — what 
is happening? Is it an anti-American 
uprising or simply April Fools' Day anti- 
cipated and extended? In any case, 
someone has definitely been conspiring 
to undermine the ordinary quietude of 
the Lebanon Valley College campus. Are 
those grimaces or grins on the faces of 
a few of the observers of these recent 

Walt Kreuger: "Pretty cool. It's not 
meant as an offense against anyone. It's 
just college humor. There should be 
more of it." 

Blanche Hawkins: "I didn't pay much 
attention because, although they add 
some variety, they are not really funny." 

Chuck Lowers: "I think they keep ■ 
morale up. This place is dead." 

BHIie Wiker: "I think most of them 
are meant in fun. A little bit of fun is 
good for any campus." 

Gary Myers: "I do not think the 
hammer and sickle and the swastikas are 
right. Although Nazism is dead, or al- 
most so, Communism is still very much 
alive and they both represent forms of 
terror. I think the Volkswagon, hanged 
rabbit and other pranks like that are all 
right. In fact, I'd like to see some more 
of them. It livens up the place a little." 

Jane Branyan: "I think they are 
meant in fun and shouldn't have any 
stronger interpretation than that." 

Dave Czirr: "Despite the valiant ef- 
forts of the Men's Senate, I think such 
pranks should be continued because they 
are a lot of fun for almost everyone." 

Study In Black And White 

"The combination of Brotherhood Week and the Negro sit-down strike involv- 
ing Southern department store lunch counters resulted in a situation ripe for edi- 
torial comment," says the Associated Collegiate Press. 

The University of Chicago MAROON editors have taken keen interest in the 
progress of two petitions concerning civil rights which were circulating on their 
campus. The first petition called for a boycott of the F. W. Woolworth Company 
and S. H. Kress Company department stores until Negroes were allowed to sit 
at the lunch counters in those chain stores. The second, a strong statement on 
an even stronger issue, objects to "apartheid," the policy of white supremacy in 
Southwest Africa. The entreaty asks citizens of the United States to boycott 
South African products along with citizens of South and Southwest Africa who are 
opposing the rule of international territory by a government sanctioned by neither 
the United Nations nor those governed. 

At Duke University, the CHRONICLE stated: "We would like to be able 
to whole-heartedly support the action taken and to urge broader student support 
for it. We could do this if we felt that the question were merely a protest of an 
unreasonable desire of the Woolworth management, motivated by prejudice, to 
discriminate against the Negroes. But the issue is not this simple." 

The complexity of the issue is due to economic as well as social factors. Any 
management faced with the problem needs to consider the risk involved should it 
agree to serve Negroes, thereby suffering the loss of its white patronizers. Now,, 
however, managers are confronted not only with moral responsibility toward fel- 
low-men which was long ago set forth by the Constitution, but with current legisla- 
tion attempting to enforce equality. Local custom is the force which is contributing 
to the resistance of many white Americans to the civil rights laws. But the Univer- 
sity of Minnesota DAILY points out that some Americans ". . . learned in grade 
school that the United States Constitution supercedes local customs." 

The instances mentioned here are only samples of action being taken all over 
the country in an effort to recognize all American citizens as respectable human 
beings. The superstition that some people deserve better opportunities than others 
belongs only to Fascism, Nazism, and despotism of all sorts. No one argues that 
background, culture, heredity, and similar factors differ widely and cause some 
people to be more capable, more socially acceptable, and more progressive than 
others. This is true of people of all races. It is equality of opportunity for each 
person to develop to the best of his ability which is the precept to which the 
founders of the Constitution were undoubtedly referring if they were the realistic 
thinkers that the rest of the document shows them to have been. They recognized 
the potential of human beings as well as their observable achievement, realizing 
that the latter can be limited and stunted by factors beyond an individual's control. 
They sought to remove as many of die limitations as possible by advocating 

Certainly the civil rights issue is not easily solved by petition, legislation, or 
any other means now being used. Even education, probably the most vital force 
presently combating discrimination, will require time to bring it to its fulfillment. 
Perhaps, however, there is a means still unattempted. Usually the last measure to 
be tried in any conflict, if tried at all, the Golden Rule may be the answer to the 
segregation-integration hassle. The means, generally speaking, used by the Negroes 
to gain their rights have been commendable, more praiseworthy than that of many 
minorities who feel themselves victims of injustice. This is more than can be said 
for the means used by whites to prevent the Negro appeals and silence them when 
they arise. The majority of Negro crusaders for equality have chosen non-violence 
and rational petition as their weapons. This editor feels that it is fairly accurate to 
say that such is not the case among most downtrodden groups. It was not true in 
Cuba. It has not been true even of groups seeking religious equality or supremacy, 
as can be exemplified by reference to Christian and Moslem history. 

Furthermore, it appears that the Negroes will accomplish their ends with less 
disturbance and bloodshed than other groups who rebel violently and revengefully 
against unfair treatment. The Negro race has served the white race since Colonial 
times— harvesting their crops, raising their children, caring for their houses, clean- 
ing up after them. 

Perhaps it is time for the white "masters" to pay their "servants" for it, be- 
fore they pay another price, the wages of tyranny. (JMK)

Dutch Flier 

by Fred Meiselman 

The LVC track and field squad opens up against Franklin and Marshall on 
Saturday, April 9. Most observers feel that the Dutchmen can overcome the Dip- 
lomats if they hold Les Bingham, an all-around track star for F & M, to a minimum 
of points. Bingham competes in the hurdles, the high jump, and pole vault and 
is a consistent winner in all of them. Another threat is John Tomasko, who 
handles the sprinting chores for the opponents as well as competing in the 440. 
But it is felt that our excellent team of sprinters and quarter milers, which include 
Les Holstein, Vern Magnuson, Don Zechman, Roger Ward, Bill Garret, Ralph 
Earp, and Dave Raebonald, will be able to hold their own and grab most of the 
points in these events. Considering the way that Dick Harper has been pole vault- 
ing, Bingham should be pressed in this event also. Les Holstein is not far be- 
hind Harper in the vault and he should be among the scorers in this event. 
Holstein also hopes to snatch the hurdle victories away from Bingham. 

Ralph Earp is the chief Valley hope in the half mile and Dave Raebonald 
should also help out. Jim Heath has turned in some surprisingly good times for 
the mile and two-mile and stands a good chance of winning these two events. 

The weight events should go to the Valley with Hi Fitzgerald and Fred Meisel- 
man in the shot and discus while Pete Wagner will have little trouble in the javelin 
and it is hoped that Vern Magnuson and Fitzgerald will be able to back him up 
with places. 

Following the Easter vacation, the LVC squad takes on the "great" Dickinson 
squad who at first boasted that no competition is good enough for them and recently 
have conceded that Lebanon Valley will be a threat. I can tell you first hand 
that the entire LVC track team is pointing to the Dickinson meet with a very 
strong desire to upset them and thus end a two-year winning streak if PMC doesn't 
do it before them this Saturday! 

The F & M meet is scheduled for 2:00 p.m. on Saturday on the LV track. I 
suggest that Valley students come out to see it and perhaps witness a pleasant 


Beating Gettysburg was an especially impressive victory for the Flying Dutch- 
men in their opener. Going into the eleventh inning, the score was tied 5-5 but 
Jack Sheaffer's single to score Mark Wert ended the game with the Valley on top. 
Bright spots in the LVC baseball team are the freshmen. Jack Sheaffer, who plays 
left field, not only drove in the game's winning run, but also made a sensational 
catch off the fences to save a possible triple in the sixth inning. Mark Wert, the 
shortstop, got two hits and scored three runs and played an adroit game on defense. 
John Yajko and Fred Porrino pitched a total of six innings and did not give up 
a hit. Porrino was given credit for the victory. 

Catcher Brooks Slatcher was the leading batman with three hits on six trips 
to the plate. Slatcher rapped two singles and a double in his first three batting 
roles. Dick Rhine, Karl Wesolowski, and Fred Porrino also contributed to the 
hitting cause with one-baggers each. 

All in all, the baseball team, by their mid-winter performance of last Saturday, 
have shown great improvement in all departments, especially the infield on defense. 
Their next game is against Dickinson on the 9th of April and it will be played at 
Carlisle. With a little bit more practice time under them, the LVC nine should 
improve on their record as the season progresses. 


Continuing in their winning ways, the tennis team rolled over Gettysburg, 
8-1 on the opponents courts. Howie Good, in the number one spot, easily de- 
feated Greg MacDonough 6-1, 6-1 in the singles. Holdovers Larry Strait, Ron 
Bell, Bob Musser, and Bob Kilmoyer also won for the Valley and each boy needed 
only two sets to do it. The only Valley loss was dealt to freshman Terry 
Myers, who lost to Bob Gray in three sets: 2-6, 6-2, 7-5. But Terry's loss was 
a close one as can be seen by the three sets required to beat him at the close score 
of the last one. Myers avenged his loss in the doubles where he teamed up with 
Fred Eckelman and they defeated Roger Crump and Dick Fine of the Bullets. Also 
in the doubles, which the Valley swept, Howie Good and Ron Bell teamed up 
and Larry Strait and Bob Musser comprised the other team. 

On Saturday, the Lebanon Valley netmen face the most challenging match of 
the season in facing Dickinson at Carlisle. As many students may recall, the Red 
Devils handed the Valley a 9-0 defeat last year — the most humiliating of the three 
losses (the other two being 5-4 "squeakers" at the hands of Albright and Western 
Maryland) the netsters absorbed in 1959. The boys stand a good chance of de- 
feating Dickinson since the latter has lost its two best men from last year's team 
but mostly because the Dutchmen are so much stronger. 

nights Choose Skaler, 
longenecker And Miller 
For Sersonal Awards 

Barry Skaler, Ken Longenecker and 
Dave Miller are the outstanding athletes 
of the basketball and wrestling seasons, 
respectively, according to the recent elec- 
tion held by the Knights of the Valley. 

Barry Skaler, LVC's senior guard and 
co-captain, has been voted as the out- 
standing basketball player for the second 
half of the season. In considering Skaler 
for this award, one must first look to his 
ability as defensive standout. Although 
only 5' 7" tall, Barry has had the task 
of "sticking" opponent players as tall as 
6' 3" such as Dick Kosman of Moravian. 
Skaler held Kosman to a mere 8 points 
in two games, well below the latter's 
20-point plus average. Albright's all — 
MASCAC star, Tom Pearsall, who ac- 
cumulated a 21.5 average over the sea- 
son, also dreaded the persistent guarding 
of Skaler. Pearsall had his two lowest 
games of the year when Albright and 
LVC met this year and it was Barry's 
job to stop him. 

Not only a defensive standout, the 
Philadelphia product can hit on a wide 
variety of shots including a deadly two- 
hand set, a quick jumper, and driving 
hooks with both hands. He managed to 
gather a 10-point plus average this year 
and was a team leader in assists. His ac- 
curate and tricky passes helped set up 
many scores and his ability to lead the 
fast break was another great asset. 

Burly heavyweight Ken Longenecker 
and Dave Miller, captain and 167-pound 
grappler have been named the outstand- 
ing wrestlers for the season by the Knights 
in their bi-seasonal selection of athletic 
team members. 

Longenecker was crowned Middle At- 
lantic Conference champion in the heavy- 
weight division after the exciting over- 
time match in which he decisioned Buck- 
nell's Ed Wight, 1-0. Ken also went 
through the season undefeated for the 
Valley in ten matches. The champ is 
a biology major but his plans for the 
future do not immediately include his 
subject of study now that he has been 
offered a chance to play pro-football 
with the Pittsburgh Steelers. 

Dave Miller of York is by far the most 
experienced and capable wrestler on the 
squad. His matches are regarded as the 
most exciting to watch as he is fast, 
strong, and tricky. Dave's record was 
second best for the Dutchmen. He also 
holds down at guard spot on the football 
team and with another year of college 
remaining, he should earn additional 
awards as well as aid the cause of the 
Valley football and wrestling teams. 

Holstein WiU Present 
Athletic Film To SCA 

Les Holstein will present a film con- 
cerning the Fourth Summer Conference 
for College and High School Athletes 
and Coaches at the Student Christian As- 
sociation Fellowship, April 20. 

Holstein attended this conference, 
sponsored by the Fellowship of Christian 
Athletes, at Estes Park, Colorado the 
week of August 16, 1959. It was at- 
tended by 628 high school, college and 
professional athletes, among them Bob 
Pettit of the St. Louis Hawks and pitcher 
Bob Feller. 

The theme of the conference, the 
fourth such gathering held since its con- 
ception, was "Let Us Run the Race." 

Millersville Added To Baseball 

The Lebanon Valley baseball squad 
has added Millersville State College to 
their 1960 schedule. The game will 
be played on Thursday, May 5, at 
Millersville. Starting time has been 
set for 3:30 p.m. 


Valley Netmen 
Defeat G-Bnrg 

While the LVC baseball team was de- 
feating the Gettysburg squad, the Dutch- 
men tennis squad was also handing the 
Bullet netsters an 8-1 setback on Satur- 
day, April 2. The Valley stars swept 
through all three of their doubles matches 
and won five of their six single matches. 

Howie Good, team captain, started off 
the romp with two 6-1 sets against Greg 
MacDonough. Larry Strait, Ron Bell, 
and Bob Musser followed Good in easily 
notching two sets apiece. Terry Myers, 
the only freshman on the squad, lost to 
Bob Gray of the Bullets, 6-2, 2-6, 5-7. 
Bob Kilmoyer, playing in sixth position, 
defeated his opponent 6-4, 6-4. 

In the doubles, Good and Bell teamed 
to smash MacDonough and Irv Findley, 
6-0, 6-0, while Strait and Musser an- 
nexed another point with 6-2, 6-3 sets. 
Terry Myers and Fred Eckelman defeat- 
ed Roger Crump and Richard Fine in 
three sets, 6-4, 5-7, 6-1. 

1. Good (LV) defeated MacDonough: 
6-1, 6-1. 

2. Strait (LV) defeated Allen: 6-3. 

3. Bell (LV) defeated Herr: 6-3, 6-3. 

4. Musser (LV) defeated Akolekar: 

6- 3, 6-1. 

5. Gray (G) defeated Myers: 2-6, 6-2, 

7- 5. 

6. Kilmoyer (LV) defeated Hershey: 
6-4, 6-4. 


1. Good and Bell (LV) defeated Lind- 
ley and MacDonough: 6-0, 6-0. 

2. Strait and Musser (LV) defeated 
Whacker and Allen: 6-2, 6-3. 

3. Myers and Eckelman (LV) defeated 
Crump and Fine: 6-4, 5-7, 6-1.

Mr. Zimmerman is a former resident

Dutchmen Win Baseball 
Opener With Gettysburg 

The Flying Dutchmen baseball squad 
used extra innings to win their opening 
game of the season over Gettysburg, 6-5. 
Last Saturday's game was won in the 
bottom of the eleventh inning on a single 
by freshman Jack Sheaffer with Mark 
Wert on third. Fred Porrino, who came 
on in the eighth was the winning pitcher 
for the Dutchmen while Bob Jacobs took 
the loss for the Bullets. 

The Valley drew first blood in the 
opening inning of the game. Brooks 
Slatcher drove a single out to score Karl 
Wesolowski and Mark Wert for the two 
scores. An error allowed Wert to score. 
Gettysburg tallied a run in the second 
and two in the third. But in the bottom 
of the third, the Dutchmen hit for three 
runs to bring the score up to 5-3. Karl 
Wesolowski and Mark Wert both singled 
and a double by Brooks Slatcher scored 

George Weaver's sacrifice drove Wert 
home and Doug Ross's sacrifice scored 
Slatcher. The Dutchmen were held 
scoreless until their game-winning run in 
the eleventh while Gettysburg tallied in 
the fifth and again in the ninth to tie up 
the game. Jim Burnett walked and 
reached second on a sacrifice by Bill 
Hoffman. Attempting to steal third, 
Fred Porrino's throw was wide to George 
Weaver and Burnett came all the way 
around to score. 

The game went into extra innings and 
both teams failed to score in the tenth. 
Gettysburg missed another in the top of 
the eleventh. The Dutchmen came to bat 
and Karl Wesolowski opened up with a 
line-drive out to the second baseman. 
Mark Wert followed with a single 
through center followed by a stolen base 
which advanced him to second. Brooks 
Slatcher went down swinging but Jack 
Sheaffer pounded out a two-out single to 
drive in Wert and win the game. 

Steve Wisler started the game for the 
Valley and went two innings giving up 
a double and single while allowing two 
walks and one run. He struck out three 
batters. Bob Stull followed Wisler and 
pitched three innings allowing three runs 
on four hits and five walks while he 
fanned three. Freshman John Yajko 
came on in the sixth and pitched no-hit 
ball for his three-inning stint. The win- 
ning pitcher, Fred Porrino, relieved 
Yajko in the eighth and also pitched no- 
hit ball for three frames. Gettysburg 
also used four pitchers and they gave up 
nine hits and six walks.

Frenzied Fashions 
For The Females 
Filled With Flutter 

Ah, Sweet Spring is come at last. (We 
can tell because for the past ten days it 
has been raining instead of snowing.) 
As the infernal twittering of birds 
awakens us. the brainshattering hum of 
rollerskates jars us from our winter re- 
veries, and hoard upon hoard of all man- 
ner of insectae swarm upon us, our 
thoughts turn to — what else but Spring 
fashions (the most profound triviality 
our frenzied minds can grasp.) 

Looking over the fashion horizon (a 
difficult feat in itself, due to the solid 
screen of insects that engulfs our fair 
valley) we see that Spring of '60 brings 
to us the incomparable Uncluttered De- 
tailed Casual Tailored Simple Bouffant 
Severe Look. One can readily see that 
this limits our spring wardrobe consider- 
ably if we are to stay within the narrow 
confines of the fashion world. The wo- 
man who must shop on a limited budget 
might well ask, "But how . . .?" We an- 
swer that question here on the printed 
page, reminding our readers once more 
that, in catering to the masses, we will 
endeavor now as in the past to present 
fashions with the practical You in mind. 

A must for this season is, of course, 
a basic Irish linen morning coat in soft 
tones of periwinkle with undertones of 
mauve. The Cape Look (heralded this 
spring with even more excitement than 
its last appearance on October 3 1 ) can 
come to reality for you in an eggplant 
maroon (THE shade for spring) gabar- 
dine with matching pointed shoes and 
broom (these with rick-rack trim, if you 

A real budget bargain of the season — 
onlj a few basic cottons will be neces- 
sary this spring; be sure to include, how- 
ever, a seersucker, a paisley print, a 
check, a few solids and madras plaids 
(each a steal at $39.95), several flower- 
ed prints, and, of course, the very im- 
portant pillowcase stripe. (A practical 
note: this dress even doubles as a pillow- 
case; in fact, you'll find it looks far bet- 
ter on a pillow.) 

Along with the cottons, you'll want to 
have at least one full-length multicolored 
calico receiving gown (a must for after- 
noon lawn parties and cricket matches) 
that will so perfectly adapt itself to the 
newly acclaimed use of violet, chartreuse, 
gold, silver, indigo, black, brown, gray, 
fungus green, and yellow eye-shadow 
with matching lipsticks and nail-polishes. 

You'll be pretty as a picture and mis- 
taken for your favorite flower garden . . . 
(in fact, one of our spring beauties was 
mistakenly showered with peat moss just 
last week, but that's another story; we 
digress). Anyhow, top off your multi- 
colored splendor with a chapeau design- 
ed in your favorite shape or silhouette 
and topped with any adornment your 
heart may desire. Originality is the key- 
note. Just last week our old friend, 
Clara Clangweedle, captured top honors 
in Fiery Gizzard Gulch (that western 
center of renown so dear to all of us) 
wearing her spring creation of turquoise 
straw and bramble-berries, topped by the 
proverbial Easter bunny. (The top 
honors, incidentally, were given for her 
curvacious fingernails; the hat merely 
accentuated that admirable trait.) 

The hat, of course, is (as it was 
Clara's) your crowning glory, but may 
we add a final footnote — shoes. (What 
else would a footnote concern?) Just a 
phrase will cover the situation splen- 
didly — a pair for every outfit. It would 
be well to have in each spring color a 
pair of flats, French heels, Cuban heels, 
stacked heels, school heels, loafers, 
spikes, sneakers, and Oxfords. And of 
course, for your full-length calico, noth- 
ing but a pair of thong sandals in dimin- 
ishing hues of dusty rose will do. 

We have provided for you only the 
barest necessities of your Spring ward- 
robe. With such a foundation, however, 
you can anticipate building up a collec- 
tion of spring ensembles that will 
astound even the most seasoned fashion 
connoisseur. (MLH & SS) 

Annual Horrors Stalk At Supper 

It is one of those warm, dark, rainy afternoons when every living being seems 
to have withdrawn from the humid bleakness. The only humans around are a few 
college students and professors, with textbook covers dripping color and briefcases 
drawing dampness, sloshing on soaking shoes from the shelter of one building to 

A few romantics wander oblivious of the damp discomforts, for spring is 
young. This one rainy day has been preceded by many sunny ones and promises to 
be followed by many more, for gradually the rain stops. Only the wet warmth 
remains in the fading gray of the evening. This is a day which seems to cling, to 
linger on, determined not to die until it has produced something living. 
Darkness, heat, and moisture breed 

John Brown's Headache 

The puzzle for this issue comes from 
sophomore math major Patsy Wise: 

The Warner Theatre was having a 
grand opening. After consulting the 
manager, Johnny Brown was able to 
take 100 people to the affair for only one 
dollar. Admissions were as follows: 

Men — $.05 each 

Women — $.02 each 

Children— $.01 for ten 

These rates were only valid if Johnny 
could take one hundred people and spend 
the whole dollar. If this were the exact 
number he took, how many men, women 
and children were included to make the 
admission charge exactly one dollar?

mailbox by Tuesday, April 12.)

Brother's Keeper Kept 

The economic 
Tide is low 
For me, 

I strive and struggle as I sweat 
While working for a goal I've set: 

I don't regret 

For I perceive 

This deficit 

Is my reprieve. 
There's no conflict 
With others now. 
You see, 

There's no responsibility 
When there is no facility. 
I'm unobliged.

strange organisms. In certain campus 
confines a high-pitched noise is growing 
to a still higher and more excited pitch. 
Feet run. Drawers and doors fly open, 
slam shut, in an irregular, expectant 
rhythm. New creatures are born in a 
whirlwind of fluff and goo, polish and 

Finally from this frenzy they emerge 
to wind their way through the warm 
watersoaked world to the place of their 
first and final revelation to the primly- 
and-properly-attired young men who 
await them. With grins and groans, the 
males greet their dinner-partners — Indi- 
ans, bathers, plump mountain climbers, 
artists, rabbits, freckle-faced kids who 
haven't learned that plaids and stripes 
don't mix, and other motley diners. 

The fear and trembling evoked in the 
masculine hearts at the strangeness of 
their feminine table-mates is somewhat 
dispelled by the soft glow of candlelight 
emanating from some of the tables and 
by the background music vibrating from 
an alarm clock. 

But alas, these strange, new creatures 
cannot live on. They will pass with the 
day, only to live again on the next 
Ladies' Skiv Night at LVC. (CM)

I Can Dream, Kant I? 

Spring is the inspired time of year. 
Spring is life and birth and renascence. 
Spring — But all this has been said in 
myriad tongues, in countless ways. What 
is there left for me to say? Can I sing 
the psalm of springtime with an empty 

I feel the mellow warmth and lift my 
face to the soft, cool rains. I watch the 
lengthening days and glory in their 
ethereal sunsets. The air invites me to 
an outdoor romp in the subtle vitality of 
the April time. 

But "nay" I say. I rush indoors and 
from my window view the spring-intoxi- 
cated world. "Fools! Peasants!" I cry. 
"There's more to life than lovely sunsets, 
more than budding flowers and fields of 
green. Don't you know what life is?" I 
wave my copy of Moby Dick before their 
flower-infested eyes. 

"Alas," they say, "Spinoza has fled to 
brutish beasts and sophomores have lost 
their reason." 

A Mephistophelean laugh escapes my 
trembling lips. "Call me Ishmael!" I 
scream into the deafening silence of 
quiet hours, while Ahab stalks the halls 
of Mary Green. 

God's in his heaven, all's right with 
the factual. (MLL)

Student Seeks Higher Education 

As the library lights beckoned in the stillness, an unknown newcomer to Leba- 
non Valley, obviously of European descent, sped on his way to the Fountain of 
Knowledge to wander about among the stacks. Naturally he chose the shortest 
route, directly across campus, that he might waste no precious time during bis 
noble pursuit of the finer things of life. Few were aware of his nocturnal en- 
deavors, however, and he retired from the scene at 10:00 a.m. the following morn- 
ing. The only recorded comments concerning his venture had something to do with 
the size of the bugs at LVC this spring.

John Stouffer will play "Thoughts of 
Love," a soft trombone solo. 

Among the other numbers will be 
"Good Friday Music" (From the opera 
Parsifal) by Wagner. This spiritual mel- 
ody strikes the key-note of Easter joy. 
Other selections on the program will in-

Though it is regrettable that a comment of this nature must appear in print, It 
once again seems necessary to make mention of the unfortunate demonstrations at 
the recent chapel hour. If a student has no respect for the speaker at such a 
gathering, it seems basic that he should consider the reputation of the College and 
the effect such a disgraceful performance can have on public relations. In high 
school, assemblies are proctored by teachers who expel unruly pupils. If this is 
impractical, perhaps we should move the primary department to the front pews. 

Commendations are in order for the Chorus, Symphony Orchestra and Sym- 
phonic Band for their performances in the Spring Music Festival. The crowded 
auditorium attested to the reputation of the groups and the skill with which they 
executed their selections. 

Congratulations are also in order for the person or persons who instituted the 
recent student opinion poll which was placed under the door of each student It is 
hoped that the results of this poll, if taken seriously by the students, will be helpful 
in upgrading conditions at Lebanon Valley. 

The following note from Professor McKlveen expresses the Student PSEA's 
appreciation for the courteous manner in which the recent delegates to the con- 
vention on our campus were received: 

"1 wish to take this opportunity to thank the members of the student body 
who so graciously cooperated to make our Student PSEA Convention the success that 
it was. To those who gave up their rooms, our student teachers and other hosts 
and hostesses, the music department, those in the dining hall, the snack bar, the 
different committees within the organization and all others who in any way con- 
tributed to a smoothly-run convention — one big THANKS." 

The division of vacations this year into two short ones, one at Easter and one 
several weeks before, was a noble experiment but was not too well received by 
many members of the student body. Those who live at a great distance found (t 
especially annoying to have to pack and head for home twice in so short a time. 
The consensus of opinion seems to be that one long vacation at Easter, as is planned 
for next year, will be appreciated. 

The recent Political Science Club straw vote and the election of the May 
Queen were both hampered by poor chapel attendance. It might be wise in the 
future to schedule such events for required chapel periods. (JMK and PHR) 

Capital Punishment: Barbarism 
Or Basic Economic Necessity? 

by Connie Myers 

Governor Brown of California can at- 
test to the fact that many people through- 
out the modern world are deeply con- 
cerned with the age-old practice of capi- 
tal punishment. A chain reaction of let- 
ters, telephone calls, telegrams and talk 
have followed the efforts of convicted 
rapist Caryl Chessman to avoid execu- 
tion (see story on page four). 

The still-undetermined fate of this one 
man has inspired controversy among 
many men on the issue of capital pun- 
ishment. Moral, religious and economic 
considerations are among the topics of 
argument. It is perhaps a dilemma which 
only time and the effective action of 
many people will solve. 

In the meantime, let us consider the 
opinions and issues expressed by some 
LVC students. 

Adele Moss: "In some cases I think 
capital punishment is necessary. There 
are times, however, when corrective 
measures should be used. Ideally, each 
punishment should be prescribed to suit 
the individual." 

Ralph Earp: "There are so many fal- 
lacies when you look at individual cases. 
No matter what you do, not everyone 
is equal under the law. I think capital 
punishment is necessary. Granted, this is 
looking at it from an economic stand- 
point, but I can't see why we should 
go on supporting persons in prison who 
have never done any good while people 
who have never done any harm are 

Shirley Huber: "The main reason that 
I don't believe that capital punishment 
should be administered to anyone except 
chronic murderers is the fact that such 
execution is adding one wrong to an- 
other. There is always the possibility

Les Holstein: "Morally speaking we 
have the commandment "Thou shalt not 
kill.' But economically, politically and 
practically, when a man has committed 
first degree (premeditated) murder he has 
forfeited his right to life because he 
could not accept responsibility for his 
fellow man. I believe in criminal reha- 
bilitation, but when a man has gone this 
far I believe he is not worth saving. For 
this type of man I believe in capital pun-

make changes — do something about the 
things that breed crime — there would be 
no need for capital punishment. As it

Ronald Bell: "I don't agree with capi- 
tal punishment. I believe if a man is 
able to contribute something to society 
— even from a jail cell — he should be 
spared. Actually, I believe a murderer 
is a person who needs psychiatric care 
more than anything else." 

Marge Peters: "I don't believe in 
capital punishment because we don't 
have the right to take anyone else's life

Jazz In Review 

by Gary Zeller 

The Horace Silver Quintet does some 
of its finest work in the Blue Note album, 
"Six Pieces of Silver" (1539). This album 
includes, except for one standard tune, 
all Silver originals. If you appreciate 
bop, this album is a must. The most ex- 
citing performance on these sides is 
"Senor Blues." It is based on a twelve- 
bar blues progression in a minor key 
with the tenor sax and trumpet playing 
in fourths. Silver calls the sound "fine 
and funky." A 12/8 beat is used 
throughout except for Silver's piano solo. 

The tricky rhythmic and counter- 
rhythmic effects used in this arrangement 
are marvelous, and the improved solos 
display a high degree of originality. 
"Cool Eyes" is a swinging up-tempo tune 
that moves straight through from begin- 
ning to end. The solos are tied together 
very effectively by eight-bar unison in- 

In addition to the ensemble arrange- 
ments, Silver also does two piano solos, 
in a dreamy style that provides great 
contrast to the rest of the arrangements 
in the album. The personnel includes 
the same group that Silver uses in his 
permanent combo: Donald Byrd, trum- 
pet; Hank Mobley, tenor sax; Doug Wat- 
kins, bass; Louis Hayes, drums; and Sil- 
ver on piano. 

The recording itself is good most of 
the time, but there are places, particu- 
larly when the trumpet and sax are play- 
ing in the high register, that a brittle, 
glassy-type sound is produced. This can 
be attributed to the recording technique 
and not to the artists, for when I heard 
this group at Randell's Island Jazz Festi- 
val last summer the sound was fairly 
rich with no trace of brittleness. 

Instrumental Solos Vocalized 

"The hottest new group in jazz" — that's 
what Down Beat calls Lambert, Hen- 
dricks and Ross. The Columbia album 
which bears their names (CL 1403) ably 
demonstrates the talents of this fine new 

This vocal trio, comprised of two men 
(Jon Hendricks and Dave Lambert) and 
a gal (Annie Ross), does new arrange- 
ments of instrumental jazz standards for 
which they have written their own words, 
not only for the melody, but also for the 
improvised solos. 

This is quite a feat, as anyone can 
guess after hearing the solos that come 
from the horns of such people as Sonny 
Rollins, Miles Davis and Herb Geller, 
but Jon Hendricks writes words for all 
the notes in the solos. This ability led 
Time to dub Hendricks "the James Joyce 
of Jive." 

Dave Lambert is the one person in the 
group who will keep them from getting 
the breaks they deserve. Lambert is con- 
stantly singing out of tune. It is impos- 
sible to say if he is flat or sharp because 
he is inconsistent about being out of 
tune, but it is safe to say that he sings 
around the correct pitch. Lambert com- 
pletely ruins the Woody Herman number 
"Bijou" by being unable to find the pitch. 

The vocal trio is backed up by an in- 
strumental trio which originally came 
from Philadelphia, the Isaacs Trio. Har- 
ry Edison, who got his start with the 
great Count Basie, helps it along with 
some fine trumpet playing. Anyone who 
likes vocal jazz should add this album to 
his collection. 

Democratic Senator Clark Voices 
Views On Civil Rights, Forand Bill 

Pennsylvania Senator Joseph S. Clark explains his stand on two important 
political issues currently in the news: civil rights and the Forand Bill concerning 
medical care for the aged: 

"By the time you read this, the Senate will have passed the Civil Rights Act of 
1960. I shall reluctantly vote for this bill — a pale ghost of our high hopes of last 

"Those of us who support a meaningful civil rights bill have suffered a severe 
defeat. The 18 implacable defenders of the way of life of the Old South have 
carried the day — with the support, to be sure, of the President, the Attorney General 
and the leaders of both parties in the Senate. 

"It is not just the Negroes of the South, but the people of the whole country 
who have lost. And the rest of the world has been watching and will pass judg- 
ment upon our failure. 

"In the end, I decided to vote for the bill. It should make it somewhat easier 
for citizens who are now disfranchised to vote, although numerous obstacles still 
remain. But some progress will be better than none — and the issue, can be raised 
again in the next Congress." 

Defends Forand Bill 

"Where will the money come from when I get sick?" That question causes 
the elderly more acute anxiety than any other. This was brought home forcefully 
to me during last fall's hearings of the Subcommittee on Problems of the Aged 
and Aging, including those I conducted in Pittsburgh. Elderly witnesses testified 
that meeting health costs is their keenest worry and that many exhaust their assets 
to pay their medical bills. Othere said, 'I just don't go to the doctors because I 
can't afford it and won't ask for charity.' 

"The elderly need more hospital care than younger people, and more nursing 
home and convalescent care, at a time of life when their incomes are lowest (60% 
of those over 65 have incomes under $1,000 a year). That is why Congressman 
Aime Forand's (D., R. I.) proposal to include health benefits in Social Security 
has generated so much public support — so much that the Eisenhower Administra- 
tion, after 7 years of inaction, has indicated it may finally make some kind of 
proposal itself. 

"Our Subcommittee has opened new hearings on medical needs of the elderly, 
which I believe will thoroughly document the necessity of enacting legislation along 
the lines of the Forand Bill. Private insurance plans, useful as they are, simply 
cannot do the complete job, particularly for low-income elderly people. Neither 
can the States. The Social Security System is the logical mechanism for removing 
the burden of financial worry from retired people through contributions paid 
during the wage-earning years of the persons to be covered." 


(ACP)— Southern California's DAILY TROJAN comments that the problem of 
publish or perish" — recently brought to Southern Cal's attention by resignation of 
a philosophy instructor — is "ignoring geographical, national and international 

The TROJAN goes on to note that criticisms and statements on the situation 
appear daily in newspapers and magazines as educators, writers and the general 
public attempt to understand and solve the problem. 

David Boroff, writing in Harper's Magazine in 1958, noted that the Harvard 
faculty was "full of glamor boys of the academic world." 

He listed such names as Archibald MacLeish and Harry Levin in literature, 
Paul Tillich in theology, and Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. and Crane Brinton in history. 
Boroff then added, "and the pressure to produce — publish or perish! — is as cruel at 
Harvard as anywhere." 

Earl McGrath, in a pamphlet put out by the Teacher's College of Columbia 
University, "The Graduate School and the Decline of Liberal Education," says 
that liberal education has been almost destroyed by the vogue for research and by 
the growth of great graduate schools which brought it about. 

Liberal education has been replaced by a strait-laced academic education 
which emphasizes research rather than teaching and written communications rather 
than organized classroom lectures, he says. 

In a New York Times article, "Too Many College Teachers Don't Teach," 
last February, John Q. Academesis, an anonymous faculty professor, says that it 
is almost an insult to be called a teacher today. He says that two "academic smears" 
take place. 

"There is the suggestion that in being a good teacher, a professor is idealistic, 
devoted to young people, loves his work and therefore is not interested in salary 
and recognition as his research colleague is," he says. 

"At the same time, there is also the implication that since he is a good teach- 
er, he is not a great scholar, that he does not have the interests of true scholarship, 
that he cannot do research and that he is not interested in the frontiers of knowl- 
edge, but only in teaching it to young people."

Bissinger Is Delegate 
To NSF Conference 

Dr. Barnard H. Bissinger, John Evans 
Lehman professor of mathematics and 
head of the department of mathematics 
at Lebanon Valley College, attended a 
two-day conference for mathematics lec- 
turers in the forthcoming 1960 National 
Science Foundation Institutes for high 
school and college teachers, Friday and 
Saturday, April 8-9, at the Roosevelt 
Hotel in Washington, D. C. 

The program emphasized a considera- 
tion of appropriate courses in algebra, 
geometry, analysis, probability and sta- 
tistics, and fundamental concepts. 

In the past two summers, Dr. Bis- 
singer has been a guest lecturer to the 
high school teachers at the summer insti- 
tute at the University of Vermont in 
Burlington, where he gave the funda- 
mentals of modern algebra. 

This summer he will be on the faculty 
of the summer institute at Rutgers Uni- 
versity, where he will be in charge of 
the seminar for college teachers of math- 
ematics. This is the first summer that 
the National Science Foundation has 
given support to this college level type 
of course at the Rutgers Institute, which 
in the previous eight years has always 
been a study center for only high school 

Much of what Dr. Bissinger intends 
to do with the college teachers will be to 
examine and write-up typical units of 
instruction for the freshman and sopho- 
more college mathematics courses with 
an eye to the trend of modernization for 
more thinking and less manipulation, as 
the program at Lebanon Valley College 
now maintains. 



7 Students Will Attend 
Annual UCYM Meeting 

Seven Valley students will attend the 
annual meeting of the Pennsylvania Uni- 
ted Christian Youth Movement, April 29 
and May 1 at Lewistown. The UCYM is 
the united voice of the Protestant youth 
in the State of Pennsylvania and is a part 
of the State Council of Churches. 

Representing the Central Pennsylvania 
Conference of the EUB Church are Car- 
olyn Magee and Larry Plymire. Freder- 
ick Crider, Richard Felty, George Hilt- 
ner, George Smith and Carl Rife will go 
in behalf of the Pennsylvania Confer- 
ence. As Chairman of the Fellowship 
Commission, Rife is a member of the 
state cabinet of the denomination. 

Accountant's Seminar 
Will Convene Here 

"Getting Figure Facts More Effective- 
ly" is the general theme for the 1960 
spring seminar of the National Associa- 
tion of Accountants. The annual event 
will take place on the Lebanon Valley 
campus beginning tomorrow at 1:30 p.m. 

The opening session of the seminar 
will feature a panel comprised of Mel- 
vyn R. Bowman, Main and Company; 
Richard F. Eberhart, Capital Products 
Company; and Ralph S. Klingel, Penn- 
sylvania Department of Revenue. Gor- 
don Mauer of the Bethlehem Steel Com- 
pany will lead the discussion. They will 
discuss "The 50's and Their Effect on Ac- 
counting Theory and Practice." 

John G. Williams of McNees, Wallace 
and Nurick will speak on "Law and the 
Accountant" in the second session. 

Robert Kitzmiller of Bethlehem Steel 
Company will speak at the third session 
which will be held in the college lounge. 
His topic is "The Importance of a Sys- 
tem and Procedure Staff Within the Ac- 
counting Department." 

Robert Riley of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege will speak at the final session of the 
seminar which will take place in the 
dining hall. 

The purpose of the seminar is to make 
the accountant of today aware of the 
many changes occurring not only in his 
own profession, but also in many sub- 
jects closely related to his profession.

Veterans' Managers 
Attend Night Classes 

Forty members of the management 
staff of the Veterans' Administration Hos- 
pital, Lebanon, are commuting to the 
campus of Lebanon Valley College to 
begin the second half of a 16-week Man- 
agement Development Course which has 
been arranged through the cooperative 
efforts of the hospital and the college. 

The course is conducted every Mon- 
day evening in the Gossard Memorial 
Library on the campus of the college. 
Robert C. Riley, chairman of the depart- 
ment of economics and business admin- 
istration, is serving as basic instructor 
and co-ordinator. 

The classes are attended by the hos- 
pital personnel on their own time. 
Among those taking the course is the 
manager of the hospital himself, Dr. 
Lester J. Kantor. 

Expenses are met on a cooperative 
basis, with the individual paying half of 
the cost and the U. S. Government pay- 
ing the other half. The plan of support- 
ing this and similar educational and self- 
improvement programs in other areas of 
the government was adopted by Con- 
gressional action to improve the effi- 
ciency of operation of the various gov- 
ernment agencies and to attempt to stem 
the loss of personnel. 

In organizing the Management Devel- 
opment Course as one of its expanding 
public service features, Lebanon Valley 
College adopted the interdisciplinary ap- 
proach to the study of managerial or ad- 
ministrative science. The course is de- 
signed to promote intellectual curiosity, 
flexibility, tolerance, objectivity, and the 
courage to make decisions. 

The first half of the course was de- 
voted to a series of lectures in which the 
philosopher, the humanist, the psycholo- 
gist, the sociologist, the mathematician 
and statistician, and the economist indi- 
cated the contributions of his specific 
discipline to the advancement of mana- 
gerial or administrative science. 

Providing these lectures were Dr. Carl 
Y. Ehrhart, professor of philosophy, Dr. 
George G. Struble, professor of English, 
Dr. Howard M. Kreitzer, dean of the 
college, Miss Alice Brumbaugh, assistant 
professor of sociology, Dr. Barnard Bis- 
singer, John Evans Lehman professor of 
mathematics, and C. F. Tom, assistant 
professor of economics and business ad- 

The second half of the course has 
scheduled such discussions as human re- 
lations, group dynamics, training, budget 
administration, communications, meth- 
ods improvement and motivation, decis- 
ion making, and evaluation. For each 
topic to be discussed, detailed reading 
lists are provided to the students.

Chessman Case Focuses Spotlight 
On Capital Punishment Question 

Is the execution of Caryl Chessman a good idea? Should capital punishment 
be abolished? Should a larger number of prisoners be put to death? 

Millions of Americans are thinking about these questions, the lives of thou- 
sands are in the balance, yet few voters have as many facts as they might use con- 
cerning the nature of capital punishment, its advantages and its disadvantages. 

Three methods of execution are used in the U. S. today — gas, the electric chair, 
and hanging. (In one state, Utah, a condemned man can choose to be shot instead 
of hanged.) 

Hanging, of course, is the oldest of 
the three, and much of the ritual that 
surrounds it has been unchanged for 
hundreds of years. The day before the 
execution, the prisoner is weighed and 
measured to find out what length of drop 
will be needed to break his neck; his 
neck is measured for the noose. 

The next morning, he is marched to 
the gallows dressed in a black suit and 
collarless white shirt, his hands strapped 
to his sides. He climbs the traditional 
13 steps to the scaffold; a black cap is 
fitted over his head; the noose is adjust- 
ed, the knot against his left ear; the trap 
is sprung, and he dangles at the end of 
the rope. If all goes well, his neck 
breaks and he dies instantly; if not, he 
strangles to death. 

Electrocution, too, has traditional pre- 
liminaries. The condemned man's head 
and one of his legs are shaved, usually 
early in the morning of the execution 
day, to provide for direct contact with 
the electrodes. 

A few hours later, he is strapped into 
the electric chair by three prison offi- 
cers, tied around the legs, waist and 
wrists. A mask goes over his face; the 
electrodes are attached to his head and 
legs. All this takes about two minutes. 

Then the signal is given, the switch is 
pulled, and electric currents of two or 
more different voltages jolt through his 
body. No one can know, of course, what 
that current feels like. The prisoner 
cringes as it goes on, but makes no 

In both hanging and electrocution, the 
body is severely disfigured, with eyes and 
tongue protruding; the electric chair also 
leaves the flesh swollen and the skin 
stretched and burned. 

Death in the gas chamber is probably 
the easiest. There are no preparations 
for the prisoner. He is marched to the 
chamber and strapped into a metal chair. 
A stethoscope, connected by copper pipes 
to the physician's stand outside the cham- 
ber, is fixed to his chest. 

Beneath the chair is a container of 
sulphuric acid. When the condemned 
man is left alone in the chamber and 
the door is sealed, the executioner presses 
a lever that drops cyanide "eggs" into 
the acid to produce the lethal gas. 

The first few breaths of gas seem to 
be painful, or at least extremely irritat- 
ing; the prisoner gasps and grimaces. He 
is probably unconscious within a minute, 
and in about 10 minutes, the physician, 
listening to the stethoscope, pronounces 
him dead. 

Capital punishment is as old as civili- 
zation itself, and has been known in the 
United States since earliest colonial 
times. It was adopted by virtually all our 
states as they entered the Union, and is 
still on the books in 41 of them. (The 
nine "abolitionist" states are Alaska, Del- 
aware, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, 
North Dakota, Rhode Island, Wisconsin 
and Hawaii.) 

Murder is the crime most commonly 
punished by death, accounting for 85% 
of all executions in the U. S. But the 
laws of various states also provide the 
death penalty for rape, kidnapping, rob- 
bery, burglary, arson, dynamiting, duel- 
ing, and even perjury. 

Advantages of Killing 

Executing prisoners has many advan- 
tages, contend advocates of capital pun- 
ishment, and one of the most clear-cut 
merits is that of economy. Providing a 
prisoner with even a near-starvation diet, 
over a period of 20 or 40 years, costs 
taxpayers thousands of dollars. Killing 
the prisoner, on the other hand, saves 
not only the cost of food, but also the 
costs of clothing, guarding and medical 

It is also argued that criminals who 

are paroled, instead of being given the 
death penalty, are a clear menace to soci- 
ety. Who is to prevent them from com- 
mitting more crimes? 

Life imprisonment, some say, is every 
bit as cruel — if not more cruel — than the 
death penalty. More than one prisoner 
has indicated that he would rather die 
than become a "lifer." Even on death- 
house row, doomed prisoners have often 
begged to be executed before the fixed 

This "merciful" argument has another 
interesting aspect. Is it possible that 
men and women guilty of serious crimes 
are psychologically defective, and that 
they would be happier dead than alive? 

Doubtless the biggest advantage of 
killing prisoners, penalty advocates point 
out, is the value of this grim measure 
as a deterrent to potential criminals. If 
certain forms of torture were legalized — 
a change in the Bill of Rights (Eighth 
Amendment) would be necessary for this 
— and perhaps televised, the sight of pris- 
oners writhing in agony, and the sound 
of their cries, might make the deterrent 
effect of legal punishment even greater, 
and create more respect for the law. 
Those who oppose killing prisoners 
cite evidence that abolition of the death 
penalty doesn't increase the murder rate 
in the slightest. Michigan, where the 
death penalty had been abolished, had 
3.1 murders per 100,000 of population 
in 1958; neighboring Illinois, where exe- 
cutions still take place, had four during 
the same year. North Dakota (no capital 
punishment) had .6 murders per 100,000 
while South Dakota (with the death pen- 
alty) had 1.6. Delaware, which abolished 
capital punishment early in 1958, had 
10 murders in 1957, two in 1958. 

Penalty opponents question the idea 
that prisoners prefer death to life impris- 
onment, and contend that a prisoner who 
works without wages on a road-improve- 
ment project contributes far more than 
it costs to keep him alive. Why kill a 
valuable slave? Besides, prisoners contri- 
bute a huge volume of blood to the Red 
Cross, and serve as subjects in perilous 
medical experiments (e.g., the injestion 
of live cancer cells into the arm) that 
benefit all of us. 

Killing prisoners is especially unfair to 
people of modest means and limited edu- 
cation, for this group suffers most from 
death penalties. Wealthy and well-edu- 
cated prisoners generally hire a smart 
enough lawyer to avoid the death pen- 
alty. Of the 140 murder cases defended 
by New York's Samuel Leibowitz, for 
example, only one defendant got the 
death penalty. But in Oregon, every de- 
fendant executed during the past 21 
years has lacked funds enough to hire 
an attorney and was represented by a 
court-appointed lawyer. 

The death penalty actually hampers 
justice, many people believe, for jurors 
often fail to bring in a "guilty" verdict — 
even when they are convinced that the 
defendant is guilty — because they rebel 
at sending a man to his death. 

Another effect of the death penalty: 
innocent people are often killed. A New 
Jersey legislative committee has heard 
testimony that at least 15 people exe- 
cuted in that state during a 25-year per- 
iod were eventually proved innocent. 
Three out of four men killed in one year 
in California were subsequently found to 
be guiltless. The first woman hanged in 
New York State (Mrs. Margaret Hough- 
taling, charged with killing her child) 
was proved innocent after the hanging, 
when another woman confessed to the 
crime. Time and again, reprieves have 
reached the death house seconds too 

How can we make people believe that 
killing is morally wrong, another argu- 

Caryl Chessman, who still swears that he is innocent of the crime for which he 
was convicted, is scheduled to enter the California gas chamber (right) on May 2, 
1960. There he will be strapped into a chair, watch his guards leave the chamber 
and lock the door, then hear the hiss of cyanide "eggs" dropping into a container of 
acid. As the gas reaches his nostrils, Chessman will gasp, grimace, then lose con- 
sciousness. Within 10 minutes, the physician will pronounce Chessman dead.

ment runs, when we permit killing by

Your Voice Counts 
Which side is right? Should we kill 
more prisoners than we have been? 
About the same number? Should we stop 
killing prisoners altogether? The state 
legislators who represent you (and who 
receive surprisingly few letters to guide 
them) — are eager to know what you 
think. If you are a voter, then you are a 
member of the statewide jury that deter- 
mines whether prisoners should be kill- 
ed. If you think this issue is important 
enough for you to send your representa- 
tive a letter, but if you don't have his 
name and address, asking the Governor 
to forward your letter is one solution.

Accounting Students 
Tour Hershey Plant 

Management and cost accounting stu- 
dents accompanied by Mr. Robert Riley 
toured the office and plant of the Her- 
shey Chocolate Corporation, Thursday, 
April 7. 

The tour for the 16 LVC students was 
arranged by the Harrisburg Chapter of 
the National Association of Account- 
ants and was conducted between 3:30- 
5:00 p.m. 

The students saw not only the process- 
es by which chocolate products are made 
at Hershey, but also some aspects of the 
direction and management functions re- 
quired to operate the business. 

The Hershey Chocolate Corporation 
is one of the largest chocolate manufac- 
turers in the United States and is visited 
annually by thousands of tourists and 
student groups. 


With Spring already here and May

social occasions — Halloween, Skiv Night, 
Groundhog Day, and National Peanut 
Butter Week to mention only a few of 
the festive holidays at which your LVC 
gymsuit will be the center of attraction. 
We could go on and on (and probably 
will unless we think of something else — 

LVC gymsuits come in a variety of 
gay colors and hues — royal blue, navy 
blue, peacock blue, and sky blue, all 
with undertones and overtones of peri- 
winkle blue, Aegean blue, mauve, and 
fungus blue. (The latter becomes espe- 
cially predominant when left in the lock- 
er for eight weeks.) The blouse (an ad- 
ded nicety) is fashion-perfected in white, 
which gradually mellows to shades of 
bone, off-white, cream, beige, tan, gray 
and charcoal through repeated washings 
in the superior washing machines in the 
basement of Mary Green Hall. 

These washers, unlike any others in the 
world, not only launder one's clothes, 
but add extra touches of color and often 
contribute unsolicited fashion touches 
like the split seam, the unraveled hem, 
and the frayed look which becomes in- 
creasingly popular at LVC each year. 
Outsiders have commented also on the 
dingy gray color which LVC girls in par- 
ticular seem to feature in their blouses 
in preference to white. 

Like Gordon-Davis, the Mary Green 
Commercial Washers have revolution- 
ized fashions here in the Valley. Com- 
muting students, unable to take advan- 
tage of these superior appliances, have 
discovered that not bothering to launder 
their blouses at all will yield nearly the 
same results, although this primitive 
method takes a little longer. Thus both 
boarding and day-student coeds have 
achieved that "uniform look" for which 
gym teachers so diligently and persistent- 
ly strive. 

Getting back to gym blouses in parti- 
cular, we note that they are in the height 
of tailored fashion, incorporating the 
new "droopy collar" look and featuring 
the bell-like sleeve which hangs limply 
midway between elbow and armpit. This 
particular sleeve length has never been 
found anywhere else in the civilized 

As far as accessories go, we find that 
simplicity is the keynote. Co-eds are 
advised that the under-dressed look is 
preferable to the over-dressed look, and 
hence all jewelry is collected before the 
girls sally forth, hockey sticks in hand, 
to the gym field. Other accessories in- 
clude sneakers, available in the same 
rainbow hues (or should we say blues?) 
of the gym suits and ultra-feminine in 
opaque canvas. 

(It has been noted that these shoes be- 
come progressively less opaque with wear 
and ultimately take on the appearance 
of aged lace. 

Last but not least come the regulation 
gym-socks, in the same off-white to gray 
shade as the blouses. It has been dis- 
covered through controlled experimenta- 
tion and empirical research that these 
socks, if washed for the same duration 
of time, will progressively discolor at the 
same rate as the gym blouses. 

Thus we have available in our very 
own bookstore, at the most fashionable 
of exhorbitant prices, a perfectly-matched 
ensemble far surpassing any outfit found 
in the ads of Glamour or Mademoiselle 
(the perfume ads, that is). (MLH) 

Mrs. Albert was explaining to 
some Jr. high students the merits 
of owning a Yearbook and having 
one's picture in it. 

"Just think," she said, "Thirty 
years from now you can look in this 
book and say, 'There's Charley 
Hartman; he is a judge now. And 
there's Jeanie Krause; she is a 
nurse now.' " 

"And there's the teacher," cam® 
a voice from the back of the room, 
"She's dead!"

Guest Virtuoso Will 
Hold Clarinet Clinic 

Reginald Kell, considered by many as 
the world's leading clarinetist, will ap- 
pear in a public recital in Engle Hall 
May 1 1 at 4:00 p.m. He will present a 
symposium entitled "The Clarinet As I

panying at the piano. 

Kell, a native of York, England, took 
a fancy to woodwinds at an early age. 
When he reached 25, he was a professor 
at the Royal Academy of Music. Later 
Kell became a member of the London 
Philharmonic Orchestra and leading 
chamber music societies. 

As a performer, he has been universal- 
ly praised for the "satin beauty" of his 
tone, the purity and precision of his per- 
formance, and the subtlety of his phras- 
ing. In recent years, Kell has made his 
home in the United States where critics 
praise him highly. 

SCA, Delta Tau Chi 
Elect New Officers 

The Student Christian Association and 
Delta Tau Chi (Servants of Christ) have

May 9 and 10. 

He will visit under the auspices of the 
American Association of Physics Teach- 
ers and the American Institute of Phy- 
sics as part of a nationwide program to 
stimulate interest in physics. The pro- 
gram is now in its third year and is sup- 
ported by the National Science Founda- 

Lectures, informal discussions, assist- 
ance to faculty members concerning cur- 
riculum and research problems in phy- 
sics, and talks with students will fea- 
ture Dr. Maxwell's visit. Professor Ja- 
cob L. Rhodes, Chairman of the Leba- 
non Valley Physics Department, is in 
charge of the arrangements. 

Dr. Maxwell came to the Naval Ord- 
nance Laboratory in 1947 as a recog- 
nized authority on magnetic mine-sweep- 
ing and mine counter-measures. He has 
been with the Bureau of Ships since 
1941, and prior to that time was engaged 
in physics research with the U. S. De- 
partment of Agriculture. 

A native of Waterloo, Iowa, Dr. Max- 
well received his B.A. degree in 1923

Kathy Patterson Is 
Recipient Of Ticket 
For European Trip 

Kathleen Patterson, a junior elemen- 
tary education major, is now traveling 
in Europe via a free ticket made avail- 
able to her through good fortune and a 
Fort Lauderdale, Florida, newspaper. 

Kathy's free ticket, 
entitling her to a jet 
flight and a 26-day 
tour of England, 
Holland, Belgium, 
Germany, Switzer- 
land, Austria, Italy, 
Monaco, and France, 
came to her in a 
most unusual way. 
The Florida newspa- 
per, of which 
Kathy's cousin is vice-president, spon- 
sored a jet trip to Europe. One gentle- 
man who originally won a ticket and 
had planned to make the trip recently 
became ill; it is his ticket which Kathy 
is using. 

The only payment necessary for her 
to make is a relatively small fee con- 
tributing toward her meals and hotel 
reservations. The trip began with the 
jet flight on Friday, April 29. Kathy will 
return Tuesday, May 24.

Tke People's Choice 

Presidential preference polls conducted at many colleges throughout the nation 
have closely paralleled Valley's own straw vote, giving Kennedy and Nixon a sub- 
stantial lead in their respective parties. In addition, as at Valley, the present Vice 
President is favored strongly over his Democratic adversary. 

While it is true that the majority of college students are not yet old enough to 
vote, these results could reflect a national trend. In any event, when a Democratic 
candidate is finally chosen in July, and the support of his party is no longer split 
among four or five representatives, it will be easier to evaluate the relative strength 
of each of the two organizations. 

If both Kennedy and Nixon are chosen to oppose each other in November, the 
course of future administrative policy will depend largely upon the personality and 
political orientation of the victor. Certain broad conjectures may be made at this 
stage concerning the shape of things to come under either of these two men. 

Foreign Affairs Are Nixon's Forte 

It is fairly safe to assume that much of the Vice President's campaigning will 
center around Soviet-American relations, since many consider international political 
ability to be an important qualification for a presidential candidate. He will prob- 
ably choose to stand upon the diplomatic agility demonstrated during his visit with 
Khrushchev in Moscow last summer. 

Even more than another representative 
of his party, Nixon has inherited the 
faults as well as the strong points of the 
Eisenhower administration. In general, 
he must defend it against the attacks of 
his opponents, for a study of his back- 
ground, especially the past seven years, 
would indicate that a Nixon administra- 
tion would be an extension of Ike's, pro- 
gressive in international affairs and con- 
servative on the domestic scene. 

Nixon has had a unique apprentice- 
ship for the chief position, for never 
before has the second highest office in 
the land been of such importance. 
More duties and greater responsibility 
were placed upon the Veep's shoulders, 
especially during the President's illness. 
Ike himself has said that "no man in 
history has had such careful prepara- 

Kennedy Stands On Record 

If Senator Kennedy of Massachusetts is chosen to run on the donkey ticket, 
much of his campaign will be based on his record, both in his own state's affairs 
and in the United States legislature, which he has served since 1946. 

In 1952, the year of the Eisenhower landslide, he defeated Republican Henry 
Cabot Lodge, Jr., for his first Senate seat. In 1958, he was re-elected by the 

largest majority in Massachusetts his- 
tory, carrying every city and county. He 
was also a strong contender for his par- 
ty's VP nomination at the 1956 national 

Kennedy has an impressive World War 
II service record, and, since graduating 
from Harvard in 1940, has received a 
total of 18 honorary doctorates from 
various colleges and universities. He is 
the recipient of a Pulitzer Prize for his 
book, "Profiles in Courage." 

The Senator's congressional record 
may indicate the type of administration 
he would pilot. His foreign policy tends 
toward strong allied cooperation for 
democratic world leadership. He favors 
a stronger missile program for western 

Richard M. Nixon 

Senator John F. Kennedy 

Within our borders, Kennedy's record indicates an interest in a more fairly 
distributed economy, with greater social security benefits and improvement in such 
areas as housing and education. 

The 1960 presidential campaign seems to be shaping up as a hot contest be- 
tween two capable men. Both parties have much in their favor, and more than ever, 
the race for votes will depend on personality as well as political position. Such fac- 
tors as religion will no doubt be emphasized beyond their importance, but the 
presence of such keen competition, while conducive to mud-slinging, also should 
lead to a simultaneous clouding and clarification of present world conditions. This 
election may be totally unpredictable until the last vote is cast. (PHR) 

Letters To La Vie 

To the Editors of La Vie: 

(Ed. note: Last week a directive was 
posted in all the women's dormitories, in 
poetry, concerning the wearing of shorts 
in Annville on Sunday.) 

Mary was a little lamb, 
A real nice girl, you know, 
But everywhere that Mary went 
Her knees were sure to show. 

She loved to wear Bermuda shorts 
While walking in the sun; 
A Sunday stroll was her delight 
When all her work was done. 

She took a walk in Annville town 
One sunny April day. 
But she was viewed, as if half nude, 
With looks of great dismay. 

"The college frowns on such displays," 
Our heroine was told. 
"On Sundays you must wear a skirt, 
As if your knees were cold." 

So Mary takes her Sunday strolls 
All clothed from head to toe 
In ankle-length and high-necked frocks, 
For not a thing may show. 

Now all of us are friendly girls, 
And prudish of a sort, 
But we have been insulted now, 
So this we must retort: 

The guys may still parade in shorts; 
They all own several pairs. 
And goodness knows, we think our legs 
Are prettier than theirs. 

The Girls 


To the Editors of La Vie: 

I was sitting in the library reading one 
Friday night and, before I realized it, 
it was 9:30 P.M. I was very uncere- 
moniously ousted from the building, and 
they wouldn't even give me time to read 
the last paragraph! 

I could have come back Saturday 
morning if I was desperate enough 
to get out of bed that early, or try to 
cram in all I wanted to do in the two 
measley hours left on Saturday afternoon, 
or wait until Monday when it would be 
too late. But why couldn't they leave the 
library open at least half an hour longer? 
Also, why couldn't it be made available 
for our use some time during the week- 
end in addition to Saturday morning and 
two hours Saturday afternoon — maybe 
Sunday afternoon or evening or even 
Saturday evening. Other colleges, as it is 
probably well known, have managed to 
provide this necessity for their student 

I realize it would cost money — the li- 
brarian has to be paid — but there must 
be some source of money for a worthy 
and necessary cause such as this. Maybe 
there are some other problems involved 
of which I am not aware. 

I'm curious — are there others who feel 
as I do? And if there are, why can't the 
library be made available for our use 
longer than it is now? We students can 
argue and debate all we want, but the 
faculty and the administration must give 
approval to some of these ideas, too, if 
we are to get anywhere. 

Concerned Student 


To the Editors of La Vie: 

All of us have committed "sins" or 
"crimes" at some time or other. Maybe 
they weren't the kind that would send us 
to prison to be executed, but actually, 
some of them may have done just as 
much harm (or more) to the people in- 
volved than those crimes for which many 
have been put to death. 

Maybe we were lucky. Instead of be- 
ing condemned for our past misdeeds, 
we were helped by someone who had 
faith in us. 

"Sure, that's fine," we may say. "But 
many of those who are killed by the 
state are psychopathic criminals and be- 
yond help." But are they? Is anyone 
beyond help? There must be some way. 

This may cost money, but tell me, 
which should be valued more, money or 
human life? 

See "Letters,'' Page 3 


Speaking as one who witnessed a strong pro-Castro sentiment among residents 
of Ybor City, the Latin Quarter of Tampa, Florida, last July, I find the Cuban 
developments of the past year particularly interesting. During my stay in Ybor 
City, where a large percentage of the people are of Spanish-American or Cuban 
descent, it was possible to speak with many citizens about what was then the 
revolutionary guerrilla uprising led by Fidel Castro. 

One young woman, about 23 years old, was a secretary from Havana, briefly 
visiting the United States. She came from a high middle-class family and was 
happy about the changes taking place in Cuba; although her family was objective 
and uninvolved politically, she said, they shared the optimism of the majority of 
Cubans towards the prospective new regime. 

Even children were enthusiastic about the events taking place in the homeland 
of their grandparents and relatives. Some planned visits to Cuba in the near future; 
all responded with approving opinions when they glanced at a newspaper headline 
heralding the success of the young rebel who became their hero. 

The young man from Havana, Hector Pedrosa, who attended Lebanon Valley 
College for the first semester of the '58-'59 college year believed in the purposes 
of the "bearded savior," reflecting the opinion of young people all over the world 
who applauded the rebellion. 

It would be interesting to interview these persons after the installment of the 
rebel regime, considering the happenings of recent months. An observer in Florida 
would now undoubtedly observe significant changes in the outlooks of those who' 
once rejoiced in the "liberation" of their friends and relatives from the Batista 
tyranny. Perhaps there would be Orwellian echoes in their present views; indeed 
Farmer Jones again stalks suspiciously through the fields and among the homes of 
his subjects. 

Although "Animal Farm," the film shown recently on campus, depicts the con- 
ditions in Russia before and after the Bolshevik Revolution, there are definite 
parallels to the Cuban situation which could be drawn. George Orwell may as 
well have delineated the rise to power of Castro. Upon gaining control, he ad- 
hered to tactics much the same as his predecessor's; in many instances he has even 
surpassed the Batista rule in cruelty and despotism. 

Surely many Cubans as well as citizens of the United States and other free 
nations are beginning to see Cuba's former ruler in the figure of Castro, even as 
Benjamin the donkey saw Napoleon's swine-features change into those of Farmer 
Jones . (JMK) 

Buy Yourself A Degree I 

When a grade school or high school 
student is caught cheating, he is frequent- 
ly admonished with the phrase, "Getting 
a good mark on a test will be of no help 
to you in future years." It goes without 
saying that by the time a student has 
reached the college level he is aware that 
the placing of answers upon an exami- 
nation will be of no help to him unless 
these answers are a usable part of his 
memory. This is the purpose of a career- 
oriented college education. 

Yet it is the sad truth that nearly 
every college and university in the na- 
tion places primary importance upon 
knowledge displayed at a certain exami- 
nation hour. The student knows that his 
general ability in any area will not suf- 
fice if he has not "had time to prepare 
specific material for any given test. To 
salvage his grade, the unprepared schol- 
ar may resort to cheating. 

It may be said that this student may 
be conscientious and may take it upon 
himself to prepare adequately for his 
career. But what of the college man who* 
coasts throught on the strength of a crib 
sheet? His diploma is written on the 
same quality paper, and all too many 
employers just assume that a sheepskin 
is an indication of competence. The 
sluggard may be weeded out; more like- 
ly, he will employ the same craft which 
enabled him to cheat his way through 
school to maintain his position by bluff. 

The recent wave of ghost-written doc- 
tor's theses at some United States uni- 
versities is but further proof that as longr 
as one has that golden piece of paper 
signifying credits, the world cares little 
for the methods used in securing it. 

It is time for a de-emphasis of the 
printed symbols of education. When ev- 
ery phase of economic and social life 
demands of an individual a concrete 
showing of one's actual abilities, the 
standards in this country will be ad- 
vanced far beyond all present levels. 


You — Courting 
A Poltergeist ? 

An English professor at Bowling 
Green Universtiy, Bowling Green, Ken- 
tucky, defines plagiarism simply as pass- 
in off as one's own the wording of some- 
one else. If this editor had taken his 
quote and repeated it here word for 
word, or nearly so without credit, she 
would be guilty of the misdeed he ex- 
plains. As a paraphrase, it is legitimate 
and acceptable. 

His definition is the generally accepted 
definition of the term, as every Valley 
student learned in freshman English. 
Most professors are careful to thorough- 
ly scrutinize term papers and similar re- 
ports for signs of such word-theft, and 
the penalty visited upon a guilty stu- 
dent is always stiff. Lack of proper doc- 
umentation, phony page numbers in the 
footnotes, and even a too-erudite phrase 
not characteristic of the student will lead 
the instructor to suspicion. 

Does plagiarism occur at LVC? Only 
the authors of the hundreds of term pa- 
pers written each year can answer that. 
One thing is sure — at LVC the penalty 
for cheating is often automatic failure 
of the course for which the paper is writ- 
ten and, in cases of repetition of the dis- 
honesty, expulsion. Professors here and 
elsewhere are sensitive to the problem 
and are strictly meeting the necessity 
for guarding against plagiarism by in- 
forming the students of the magnanimity 
of the crime, the kind of copying it re- 
fers to, and the severity of the penalties 
for it. A plagiarist may find himself 
involved not only with an instructor and 
his rules but with the copyright laws. 

Why is the price so high for infringe- 
ment of such laws? Obviously, the cre- 
ator and author of an idea or manu- 
script which gets into print needs to be 
protected from those who seek a ride to 
the Dean's List or other goals on his 
coat-tails. His reputation and his eco- 
nomic well-being is at stake. Then, too, 
students need to be made to think for 
themselves, and stiff regulations against 
copying force them to learn real, honest 
research, to come up with ideas and 
phrasing of their own, and to gain re- 
spect for the accomplishments of others, 
giving due credit for them. 

Adherence to ghost-writing proced- 
ures, plagiarism's big-brother racket, is 
the next resort of a chronic word-thief. 
Both crimes are the result of a puzzling 

combination of proud ambition and ap- 
palling laziness, plus an aversion to crea- 
tivity and learning itself. The suggestion 
that plagiarism is ghost-writer patroniz- 
ing on a small scale is one which should 
be recognized by any student planning to 
attempt dishonesty in a thesis of any 
kind. He should know what his future 
will hold. 

He should know about and be pre- 
pared for the shadowy ghost-land he will 
have to enter when he outgrows copying 
— the electing of another's words to 
speak for him — and needs to hire anoth- 
er's mind to think for him. (JMK)

Religions of the USA 

Unitarian Church Members 
Seek Freedom Of Thought 

Bennington is a quiet picture-book 
town nestling in Vermont's Green Moun- 
tains. Like most Vermont folks, Benning- 
ton people are conservative. But among 
them are a handful of religious liberals 
— people who can't accept intellectually 
the teachings of the more orthodox reli- 

In Unitarianism, Bennington's hand- 
ful have found a free religious philoso- 
phy that suits them exactly — and they've 
also found a do-it-yourself form of or- 
ganization that has helped the Unitarian 
denomination to become one of the 
fastest-growing religious movements in 

Unitarianism does not perhaps appeal 
to the majority of American church- 
goers, but it does seem to have some- 
thing solid to offer to spiritually-starved 
Americans who cannot reconcile their 
personal thoughts about religion with the 
teachings of the churches near their 

One year ago there was no Unitarian 
group in Bennington at all. But there 
were a couple of people who had once 
been members of Unitarian churches 
elsewhere. They had heard about the 
denomination's Fellowship Movement. 
They wrote to the American Unitarian 
Association, 25 Beacon St., Boston. 
Then things began to happen. 

"This whole idea is only ten years 
old," Monroe Husbands, AUA Fellow- 
ship director, said. "We're still learning 
how to do it right — mostly by hearing 
of the mistakes and successes of people 
like you." 

Husbands said the AUA would pro- 
vide literature, organizational advice, 
and other materials. By making a token 
contribution to the AUA as evidence of 
good faith, the group would become for- 
mally affiliated as a lay-led fellowship. 
Because Unitarianism has no creed or 
dogma, but allows each member to form 
his own religious belief, the new fellow- 
ship would not be asked to accept any 

"Most Unitarians accept the spiritual 
leadership of Jesus," Husbands said, "but 
prefer to follow his ethical teachings 
without making him a god. Unitarians 
believe all religions have much to offer, 
and that none has the only answer. Uni- 
tarians are more concerned with 'getting 
heaven into men instead of men into 
heaven.' " 

This was what the Bennington group 
was looking for. The next month, 19 
adults adopted by-laws, elected a chair- 
man, and were on their way. Luckier 
than some other fellowships which of- 
ten begin by meeting in homes or busi- 
ness offices, the Bennington Fellowship 
was allowed the use of a charming 71- 
year-old former schoolhouse. 

In March of 1960, the Unitarian Fel- 
lowship of Bennington had 25 adult 
members, and 11 children enrolled in a 
Sunday School taught by members who 
are school teachers. Among the 
members are an electronic's research- 
er, a retired professor of econom- 
ics, a car dealer, a broker, a chemist, 
and an artist. Professionally they have 
little in common, and their religious 
backgrounds are just as diverse — many 
had been brought up in orthodox de- 
nominations with firm doctrines and ela- 
borate rituals. 

Will the Bennington Fellowship even- 
tually become a church, as have many 
other groups in the 11 -year-old fellow- 
ship movement? 

"Not for some time, and perhaps nev- 
er," says Allan P. Robertson, fellowship 
chairman who is a retired phone com- 
pany executive. "Many fellowships do 
not wish to become churches, even 
though all Unitarian churches are liberal 
in their religious philosophy. As auton- 
omous lay-led groups, the fellowships are 
just as valid a part of the Unitarian 
movement as if they had church status." 
In the next ten years, McLean Greeley, 
AUA president, looks for the 396 Uni- 
tarian churches to grow to 600, and fel- 

Kalo ElectsDanf elt; 
Matlack Is Adviser 

Barry Danfelt was re-elected presi- 
dent of Kappa Lambda Sigma at the 
organization's meeting April 26. Mr. 
Jesse Matlack's appointment as adviser 
was announced by the office of the Dean 
of Men. Replacing former adviser Dr. 
Earl Light, Mr. Matlack will be instated 
at the Kap La Sig stag banquet May 9. 

The speaker at this occasion will be a 
Kalo alumnus, Mr. Ralph Shay. Eleven 
pledges will be inducted and the 1960-61 
officers will be installed. 

Glee Club To Sing 

The Kap La Sig men's chorus will 
take part in the May Day events on 
May 7, and other members of the organ- 
ization will contribute to the functioning 
of the campus display. Kalo is respon- 
sible for the erection of the bleachers 
for this event. 

Other officers elected for the coming 
year include: Stan Kaczorowski, vice 
president; Gary DeHart, recording secre- 
tary; Bill Hawk, corresponding secretary; 
Dean Wetzel and Lowell Brogan, treas- 
urers; Vance Stouffer, Sergeant-at-arms; 
Don Drumheller, chaplain; and Joe 
Coen, Student-Faculty representative. 

Pol Sci Club Elects Officers 

The Lebanon Valley Political Science 
Club has elected James Reilly president 
for the 1960-61 academic year. Other of- 
ficers include: Pete Silldorff, vice presi- 
dent; James Bemesderfer, treasurer; Dor- 
is Kohl, secretary; William Rigler, Stu- 
ent Faculty representative; and Barry 
Danfelt, ICG chairman. 

Little White Schoolhouse is the home of the Unitarian Fellowship in Bennington, 
Vermont. Here the little group of religious liberals meets every Sunday for medita- 
tion and discussion. 

Dr. Neidig To Address 
NY Chemistry Students 

Dr. Howard A. Neidig, chairman of 
the department of chemistry at LVC, will 
participate in the visiting scientist pro- 
gram of the Division of Chemical Edu- 
cation of the American Chemical Soci- 
ety, May 5-7. 

On May 5, he will address students 
at the Albany, New York, High School. 
Dr. Neidig will also present four lec- 
tures to students in the two high schools 
of Schenectady and another to the teach- 
ers of these schools an May 6. 

On the morning of May 7 he will 
present an address entitled "The Value of 
Laboratory Work in Secondary Science" 
at the spring meeting of the Science 
Teachers Association of New York State, 
Eastern Section. 

lowships to increase to 1,000. 

But growth has posed serious prob- 
lems for what Dr. Greeley calls "the 
religion of the future." In the boom of 
the past 10 years, 44,000 adults were 
added — but only 58 ministers were add- 
ed to serve them. Last summer 33 
churches were looking for ministers at 
the same time. 

To meet the challenge caused by 
growth, the AUA has launched a 
$3,200,000 Development Fund campaign 
under the chairmanship of Percival F. 
Brundage, former director of the U. S. 
Bureau of the Budget and distinguished 
Unitarian layman. Some of the funds are 
earmarked for support of theological 
schools, services to churches and fellow- 
ships, a bigger Building Loan Fund, a 
program on college campuses, strength- 
ening of the ministry, religious educa- 
tion, and a pioneering study of science 
and religion. 

Unitarian religious philosophy seems 
to appeal not only to people in small 
towns who form fellowships, but to 
world figures. There are many more Un- 
itarians listed in "Who's Who," in pro- 
portion to membership, than any other 
religious group. Unitarians claim five 
Presidents: The two Adamses, Jefferson, 
Fillmore, and Taft; such great men and 
women of the past as Darwin, Florence 
Nightingale, Emerson, Daniel Webster, 
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Franklin, Long- 
fellow, Thoreau — and, before there was 
an organized denomination, John Milton 
and Isaac Newton. 

Famous contemporary Unitarians in- 
clude Adlai Stevenson, James R. Killian, 
Chester Bowles, John P. Marquand, 
Sinclair Weeks, Dr. Paul Dudley White, 
the late Frank Lloyd Wright, and five 
U. S. Senators. 

With people like that, the "church of 
the future" has a firm base in its stirring 
past and vigorous present. It is small 
wonder that Unitarians go forward with 
confidence and growing influence into a 
Space Age in which man may find some 
answer to the mysteries of the uni- 
verse, and ask new questions about the 
nature of life and the spirit. 

Madame Monteux, 
11 Valley Students 
Heard In Recitals 

Madame Monteux, the wife of world- 
renowned orchestra conductor Pierre 
Monteux, appeared in an informal pro- 
gram of Baroque Keyboard Literature in 
Engle Hall, Monday, May 2. 

She is the mother-in-law of Mr. Thom- 
as Lanese. Those in attendance report 
that the 70-year-old woman thrilled the 
audience with a display of her superb 
technique in the hour-long performance. 
Students Perform, May 3 

Another recital presented in Engle 
Hall on May 3 featured a variety of 
student instrumentalists. 

Those who participated were Mark 
Dubbs, Jean Kelly Caruth, Jane Mc- 
Cann, Emily Bowman, Dennis Sweigart, 
pianists; Linda Koerper on saxophone 
accompanied by Kay Hoffer, piano; 
Richard Miller on French horn accom- 
panied on the piano by Bonnie Jean Fix; 
and David Poff, organist. 

SCA and Debate Club To 
Discuss Race Problems 

A panel discussion of the world's 
racial problems will be the feature of a 
combined SCA-Debating Society meet- 
ing in the Snack Bar of the College 
Lounge Wednesday, May 11, at 7:15 

Five members of the Debating Soci- 
ety, William Baker, Harold Miller, David 
Pierce, James Reilly and Bela Takacs, 
have been doing research on the social 
situation in such areas as South Africa 
and Great Britain. These panel mem- 
bers will debate their findings and invite 
questions and discussion from the group.

So we help them to even partly over- 
come their problems; what good are 
these people, anyway? Well, who are 
we to piously declare that God has no 
task for these minds to fulfill, that these

to the world and so must be killed?

Prof Riley Will Attend 
Accountants Convention 

Mr. Robert C. Riley, associate pro- 
fessor of economics and business admin- 
istration and national director of the 
National Association of Accountants for 
1959 and 1960, will attend a meeting of 
the National Board of Directors at the 
Hotel Biltmore, New York City, today. 

The National Association of Account- 
ants, with 145 Chapters, is the largest 
accounting association in the world. It 
is composed of approximately 45,000 
members from various industrial and 
professional groups who are interested in 
the problems of industrial accounting. 

The purposes of the organization are 
to unite through membership persons 
interested in accounting; to provide op- 
portunities for members to increase their 
knowledge of accounting practices and 
methods; to develop through research, 
discussion and exchange of information 
a better understanding of the nature, pur- 
poses and uses of accounting as applied 
to all types of economic endeavors, and 
to make this information available to 
members; and to foster acquaintances 
and fellowship among members and pro- 
vide opportunities for development of 
their individual abilities. 

Educational activities are carried out 
by this professional organization at the 
chapter, region, national and interna- 
tional levels. The Harrisburg Chapter of 
the NAA had its spring accounting semi- 
nar on the Lebanon Valley College cam- 
pus Friday, April 22, 1960.

La Vie Collegienne, Saturday, May 7, 1960 

Dutch Flier 

by Fred Meiselman 

By far the most successful of all spring sports thus far has been tennis. 
At the time of this writing, the netmen have a 5-1 record, the lone loss being to 
Dickinson. The Dutchmen have easily whipped past Juniata, Drexel, Moravian, 
Elizabeth town, and Gettysburg. All seven mainstays of the squad have winning 
records in both singles and doubles competition. Larry Strait leads in singles vic- 
tories with a clean slate of 6-0. Number one man and team captain Howie Good 
leads in total games won with a 5-1 record in both singles and doubles. The re- 
maining four singles players, Bob Musser, Ron Bell, Terry Myers, and Bob Kil- 
moyer all boast 5-1 records. Fred Eckelman, who participates only in doubles 
competition, has a 4-2 record. 

In the remaining matches of the season the toughest should be against Western 
Maryland. If the squad continues in their winning form, there is a chance of ac- 
cumulating a 10-1 record — far better than any LVC tennis squad has ever achieved. 


Making like major leaguers, the Flying Dutchmen baseball squad has been 
playing double-headers and find that they are 50-50 endeavors. The Valley has 
split their last two double-headers with Dickinson and Wilkes. The Dickinson 
games were no doubt unusual experiences in college baseball: Valley pitchers gave 
up a mere hit in both games as Steve Wisler and John Yajko combined for a no- 
hitter. Yet they lost 5-0! Yajko gave up the one hit in the second game that the 
LV men managed to win, 5-3. 

In the second double-header against Wilkes, the Valley, behind a two-hitter 
by Steve Wisler whitewashed the Colonels 8-0. Brooks Slatcher belted out three 
hits and Bob Stull added another two — one a double, to lead the eleven-hit bar- 
rage. In the second game, Wilkes came up with a four-run first inning and never 
trailed to gain a 7-3 decision. Freshman John Yajko suffered the loss but four 
Valley errors did not help the cause. Dick Rhine, who has been doing a fine job 
at second base, went three for three. The Dutchmen out-hit Wilkes, 9-8, but too 
many errors mined it for them. 

So far, the Valley is sporting a 4-4 record. In general, the team has shown 
tremendous improvement in the hitting department. Every ball player has man- 
aged to get his share of hits, especially Slatcher, Rhine, Ross, Stull, and Sheaffer. 
The pitching is also improved with the return of Steve Wisler and the presence of 
two freshmen, John Yajko and Fred Porrino. Russ Urey and Bob Stull round out 
the mound staff. Co-captain Stull, when not on the mound, is the starting left 
fielder. Although they have had some games with only one or two errors com- 
mitted, this still remains as the weakspot. The four miscues in the Wilkes loss was 
F mild compared to the total of 13 in the Dickinson twin-bill! If the Valley could 
somehow alleviate their fielding faults, the remaining games should go their way. 


After suffering two one-side set-backs at the hands of Franklin and Marshall 
and Dickinson, the LVC thinclads have started back on the road to victory. The 
Diplomats surprised the Valley with a 78 5/6-47 1/6 setback while Dickinson 
humiliated them. In the F & M meet, Les Holstein and Roger Ward took the first 
two places in the 100 in the slow time of :10.8. Pete Wagner got off a mighty 
throw of 199'9" to win the javelin and establish a school record, but immediately 
afterwards, announced his retirement from the academic scene. This was a bad 
break for the Valley because of Pete's ability as a javelin thrower and speedy full- 
back. Dick Harper cleared 11 feet in the pole vault to tie for first place with 
F & M's Bill Bingham. Yours truly managed two firsts in the shot put and discus. 
Some other bright spots occured in the meet: Jim Heath placed second in the mile; 
Hi Fitzgerald garnished two thirds in the shot and discus; freshman Dave Raebonald 
ran home third in the 880, and Roger Ward proved himself a capable sprinter net- 
ting a second and a third in the 100 and 220 respectively. 

Against Dickinson, the Valley could do nothing right. They start off by be- 
ing swept in the 100 yard dash — the event that we usually dominate. Ralph Earp 
placed second in the 880 and in the two-mile run Jim Heath finished a close third 
behind Matt and Jebo of the Red Devils in the good time of 10.43. Dick Harper 
vaulted 11 feet to win his specialty, the pole vault. The Valley swept the shot put 
and placed one-two in the discus behind Hi Fitzgerald, Jim Healy, and Fred Meisel- 

Individuals Star For LV 

Against Western Maryland, LV lost in the last event, the mile relay, by a 
score of 60-57. Individual standouts for the Valley were Jim Heath who outran 
the field in the two-mile event in 10 minutes 47 seconds; Les Holstein, who tied 
for first in the high jump, won the high hurdles, and placed third in the century and 
the pole vault. After a slow start, Holstein seems to be getting back to his expected 
form. Jim Brommer, an up and coming distance runner, captured a second in the 
mile and third in the two-mile run. Dick Harper placed a frustrating second in 
the pole vault with a school record-tying lead of 1 1 feet 6 inches, but Bob Atthrell 
of the Green Terrors went over at 12 feet. Fred Meiselman, Hi Fitzgerald, and 
Jim Healy swept the shot for the second meet in a row. Meiselman also won the 
discus with a throw of 125 feet 10 inches. Co-captain Don Zechman sprinted to 
victory in the 220 yard dash in 24.3 seconds while Vern Magnuson leaped 19 feet 
5 inches to win the broad jump. Ralph Earp ran his best race of the year but 
finished a close second in the 440 which was clocked in :51.9 seconds. 

Squad Sets New Record 

The Valley track squad really opened up against Susquehanna and set a school 
scoring mark by beating them 91^ - 34y 2 . This bettered the mark of 84 points in 
a single meet, surpassing that which was set against Muhlenberg in 1958. 
Les Holstein bettered his performances against Western Maryland in winning the 
100 yard dash in 10.3 seconds, the high hurdles in 17.1 seconds, and the lows in 
27.1 seconds. Jim Brommer came up with two unexpected victories in the mile and 
two mile, being timed in 4:57.5 and 11:34.7 respectively. Ralph Earp broke from 
the pack in the one-lap race to register a 54.4 victory. Dave Raebonald, a fresh- 
man, showed much promise by outdistancing the half-mile field in 2:10.1. The 
220 yard dash went to Don Zechman in his best time of the year — 23 flat. Dave 
Mulholland and baseballer Gene Stambach tied for a first in the high jump with a 
nice leap of 5 feet 10 inches while Dick Harper hit 11 feet in the pole vault to 
lead a sweep which saw John Kobylarz and Les Holstein get the rest of the points. 
Fred Meiselman, Hi Fitzgerald, and Jim Healy swept the shot for the third straight 
time and Meiselman and Fitzgerald took one and three in the discus. Vern Mag- 
nuson took two seconds in 100 and low hurdles. Susequehanna, competing in then- 
first meet in a good many years, swept the broad jump and javelin. Carl Rife, 
overcoming a pre-season illness, collected a second in the 880 behind Raebonald. 

If the Valley could continue to score in the 100 and 220 yard dashes as they 
did against Susquehanna, the outcome of future meets might be in favor of the 
Valley. With the vast improvement of 880, one and two mile runners and the 
field strength, the LVC thinclads will show their heels to the likes of Albright, Ur- 
sinus, and Muhlenberg opponents. 

Shut Out Jbrexel 

Drexel Tech found the rain to their 
disadvantage in a tennis match with the 
Flying Dutchmen on April 25 as they 
suffered a 7-0 defeat which saw Larry 
Strait score two shut-out sets for LV 
against Pete Harkins. 

Howie Good handed Barney Edwards 
6-2, 6-3 setbacks while Ron Bell match- 
ed Dick Kelleher 6-1 and 6-2. Bob Mus- 
ser and Terry Myers also gained singles 
victories for the Valley while Bob Kil- 
moyer picked one up the easy way, by 
default. Two doubles were rained out 
and Myers and Fred Eckelman also gain- 
ed their victory by default. 


Howie Good (LV) defeated Barney Ed-

F And M Defeats LV 
In Home Track Meet 

Bill Bingham placed high in five 
events to score 20 points and led the 
Franklin and Marshall track team to a 
78 5/6 to 47 1/6 victory over Lebanon 
Valley, April 20. 

LV's senior pole vaulter, Dick Harper, 
tied Bingham for first place by vaulting 
11 feet. Les Holstein gained a first 
place in the hundred yard dash, and was 
clocked at 10.8 seconds. 

In the field events, Dutchman Fred 
Meiselman won the shot put and discus 
and freshman Pete Wagner captured the 
javelin title with a heave of 199 feet, 
nine inches. 

LV Shatters 2 Records, 
Romps At Susquehanna 

Two Lebanon Valley track records 
were erased on April 28 as the Dutch- 
men defeated the Susquehanna Univer- 
sity thinclads by a 91 y 2 to 34 l / 2 score. 

Valley weightman Fred Meiselman 
wiped out the 46-year-old record for the 
shot put with a toss of 43 feet, 1 1 inches, 
topping the mark set by Marcel Von 
Bereghy in 1914. Meiselman also won 
the discus throw. The LV team piled up 
a new point total in passing the record 
of 84 points set in a 1958 Muhlenberg 

Les Holstein displayed top form as the 
meet's individual standout with victories 
in both hurdle races and the 100-yard 
dash, and placing second in the pole 
vault. Freshman Jim Brommer won 
both the one-mile and two-mile runs as 
the Dutchmen took firsts in all running 
events on the program. 

LV Hurls No-Hitter; 
Loses To Dickinson 

Two Lebanon Valley hurlers combined 
to toss a no-hitter at Dickinson on April 
9 but lost the game on five unearned 
runs, 5-0. 

Steve Wisler and Russ Urey blanked 
the Red Devils hit-wise in the first game 
but Wisler went into the books as the 
losing pitcher when Dickinson pushed 
across five runs in the middle innings 
to win. 

In the second game of the double- 
header, played in cold weather with snow 
flurries blowing, the Valley men were 
able to combine hitting with pitching to 
win 5-3. A hitless seventh inning pro- 
vided four unearned runs to give LVC 
the win in the second game. John Yajko 
got the win for LVC and yielded only 
one hit. 

Valley Drops Match 
To Dickinson Netmen 

In their only loss of the season thus 
far, the Lebanon Valley tennis team 
dropped a 7-2 decision to Dickinson on 
April 9. Larry Strait and Terry Myers 
were the two Dutchmen victors. 

Strait defeated Tucker Wolf 6-2, 6-3 
while Myers handed Byron Quann 6-0 
and 6-1 defeats following a 9-7 set won 
by Quann. 

The match was played on the Red 
Devil courts in Carlisle where the Valley 
also suffered a 9-0 defeat last year. Val- 
ley's number one man, Howie Good, put 
up a substantial defense but could not 
hold off Dick Tull, who took the match 
in three sets, 5-7, 6-4 and 6-3. 

Ron Bell, Bob Musser and Bob Kil- 
moyer also suffered singles defeats. In 
the doubles, the Red Devils had clean 
sweeps, taking all three matches in two 
sets apiece. 

Western Maryland 
Edges LVC 60-57 

The LVC trackmen traveled to West- 
ern Maryland for their third meet of the 
year on April 23, but came out on the 
short end of the tally as the Green Ter- 
rors edged out a score of 60-57. 

Les Holstein picked up wins in the 
high jump and the 120-yard high hurdles 
and placed third in both the 100-yard 
dash and the pole vault. Dick Harper 
tied his own LVC record in the pole 
vault when he cleared the bar at 1 1 feet, 
six inches. 

Fred Meiselman won his specialties, 
the shot put and discus throw, as the 
Dutchmen swept both events. Hi Fitzger- 
ald and Jim Healy placed second and 
third in the two weight contests. 

Vern Magnuson won the broad jump 
for Valley with a leap of 19 feet, five 
inches, and senior Don Zechman sprint- 

Valley Netmen Defeat 
Moravian College, 9-0 

The LVC netmen swept their matches 
with the Moravian College racqueteers 
by a 9-0 count on the latter's Bethlehem 
courts April 23, winning all matches in 
straight sets. The Dutchmen encountered 
no difficulty in their singles matches. 

Bob Kilmoyer shut out his opponent 
with two 6-0 sets. Howie Good and Lar- 
ry Strait both registered 6-1, 6-0 over 
their opponents, Bob Lipkin and George 
Figgel respectively. 

In combined play, Ron Bell and Good 
decisioned Figgel and Lipkin 6-2, 6-2, 
while Strait and Bob Musser handed the 
same to Tom Christianson and Dick 
Spaugh. Terry Myers and Fred Eckel- 
man had a slightly tougher time but 
came through in two sets 6-3 and 7-5. 

LV Takes Loss From 
Moravian College, 8-4 

LV dropped an 8-4 baseball contest to 
Moravian College on the latter's court 
April 23. The Greyhounds took the lead 
with a three-run homer over center field 
in the third inning by Bob Chergey. 

Valley's starter Russ Urey then gave 
way to hurler Fred Porrino, who gave up 
three runs in the seventh to add to the 
host's tally. 

Moravian pitcher Lou Klucharich lost 
a shutout game in the fifth when the 
Dutchmen gained their first run. He 
then yielded to Jan Fritz, who gave up 
three more before the end. 

ed to victory in the 220-yard dash in 
24.3 seconds. 

Jim Heath won the two-mile event in 
ten minutes and 47 seconds and Jim 
Brommer took a second in the mile and 
a third in the two-mile run. 

Les Holstein's five-foot, six-inch leap 
coupled with efforts by Dave Mulholland 
and Tex Vanderbach gave Valley a 
sweep in the high jump. In the 120-yard 
high hurdles Holstein did an 18.4 and 
Ralph Earp captured a second in the 
440-yard dash. Carl Rife and Dave Ra- 
benold scored third places in the one- 
mile run and the 880 in that order. 

LV Tennis Squad 
Decisions Juniata 

The LVC netmen won all their singles 
matches but dropped two doubles in an- 
nexing a 7-2 decision over Juniata on 
April 27. Howie Good was the star of 
the day with two shut-out sets against 
Stan Conner. Larry Strait, Bob Musser 
and Bob Kilmoyer needed only two sets 
to gain their victories while Terry Myers 
and Ron Bell did so in three. 

In the doubles, Good and Bell teamed 
up to defeat Roy Phrogner and Pete 
Christie 6-2, 6-2. Conner and Jack Mer- 
rill of the visiting Juniata squad defeated 
Strait and Musser 9-7, 6-2, while Chick 
Weist and Wayne Patterson won a hard- 
fought match against, Kilmoyer and Fred 
Eckelman 6-4, 3-6 and 7-5. 

Valley's record to date stands at five 
wins and one loss.

Flying Dutchmen Sweep 
E-town Tennis Match 

Elizabethtown College suffered a 9-0 
defeat at the hands of the LVC tennis 
squad on April 20 in a home match for 
the Dutchmen. Rebounding from their 
7-2 loss at Dickinson, the Valley had 
a comparatively easy day. 

Howie Good, after dropping his first 
set to Eugene Gordon 6-3, came back 
with two quick victories 6-0, 6-2. In the 
other singles, Larry Strait, Bob Musser, 
Ron Bell, Terry Myers and Bob Kilmoy- 
er all registered two-set victories. Most 
impressive was Bell's 6-0, 6-2 decision 
over Lloyd Nyce. 

In the doubles, Good and Bell com- 
bined to defeat Gordon and Dick Lantzy 
6-3, 6-4. Strait and Musser defeated 
Nyce and Roy Erb 6-0, 6-1, while Myers

LV Splits Two With 
Wilkes; Wisler Stars 

Spurred by Steve Wisler's shutout 
pitching, Valley's diamond team split a 
pair with Wilkes College on Saturday, 
April 30, taking the opener 8-0 but 
dropping the nightcap 7-3. 

Wisler held the host team to two hits 
and two walks for his second win in 
three season starts. The Dutchmen fired 
11 hits at the Wilkes pitcher, George 
Gacha, and piled up a total of eight 

In the second game, the home team 
squeezed four runs in the first inning off 
Valley hurler John Yajko, and aided by 
four LV errors, sped to a 7-3 victory 
although Valley outhit their hosts 9-8. 

La Vie Collegienne, Saturday, May 7, 1960 


Feathers And Shorts 

Spell d; ning Comfort 

At least once a year the men of Leba- 
non Valley feel they have to demon- 
strate their independence by ignoring the 
dress-for-dinner rule and staging a Skiv 
Night. This year's production was com- 
paratively tame, with hats and shorts as 
the order of the day. Perhaps the cos- 
tumes weren't as original as the bath- 
robes and evening dresses sported by the 
men last year, but we guarantee they 
were more comfortable. 

Humor Suffers When Americans 
Take Themselves Too Seriously 

peace with their enemies. 

Nobody believes it, though. As late 
as 1947, when a McCoy, trying to inter- 
fere with the arrest of a friend, was shot 
by the local police chief, who happened 
to be a Hatfield, headline writers from 
coast to coast gleefully proclaimed the 
reopening of the feud. 

Royal families, of course, get the most 
space in the history books — especially if 
they stay around for a few centuries, like 
the Capets, who held the throne of 
France from 987, when Hugh Capet 
founded the dynasty, to 1789, when 
Louis XVI lost his head in the French 
Revolution. But the family names of liv- 
ing sovereigns tend to be forgotten, since 
nobody calls a king or queen Mr. or 
Mrs. So-and-so. 

The British royal family recently 
changed its name. Queen Elizabeth II 
has added the family name of her hus- 
band, Prince Philip, to that of her own 
House of Windsor — and when their son, 
Prince Charles, becomes King of Eng- 
land, he'll be the first of the new House 
of Mountbatten-Windsor. 

Even though we don't have royal dy- 
nasties in the United States, we have 
families who have shone in public life 
through several generations. 

Perhaps the most distinguished family 
of statesmen in our history are the 
Adamses, who in three generations pro- 
duced two Presidents, John and John 
Quincy, and a diplomat, Charles Francis, 
who may have rendered greater service 
to his country during the Civil War, as 
Minister to England, than anyone but 
President Lincoln. The fourth generation 
Adams, Henry, was one of America's 
most distinguished writers. 

And in our own century, two branch- 
es of one family have each come up 
with a President — Republican Teddy 
Roosevelt from Oyster Bay, and Demo- 
crat F. D. R. from Hyde Park. 

The roster of famous families is a 
long one. Nobody knows what new fam- 
ily names will be famous 150 years 
from now. One of them could be yours. 

Family Names Have Famous 
And Notorious Connotations 

Ever since the days of Noah and his three sons, 16 grandchildren and 54 
great-grandchildren, some families have been chalking up collective honors for 
their size, prosperity, talents or accomplishments, while others have hit the history 
books and the headlines for their misfortune or misbehavior. 

Some famous clans, though, may be famous for the wrong reasons. If the 
Barrymores make you think of drama and the Hatfields of the McCoys, you're 
right. But if the Borgias, who ruled Rome in the 15th Century, make you think of 
poison — as they do most people — then you're probably wrong. 

They were hardly a well-behaved lot 
by today's standards, but neither were 
many people in Renaissance Italy. And, 
modern historians say, they certainly did 
not make a practice of poisoning an en- 
emy every morning before breakfast. In 
fact, Lucrezia, who has come down in 
popular tradition as the most venomous 
of the lot, was a very nice girl. 

Nobody knows for sure how the Bor- 
gias got their sinister reputation. But 
they were disliked by many Romans sim- 
ply because they were foreigners from 
Spain, and it would have been easy 
enough for their political foes to start 
dark rumors of their knowledge of the 
poisons of the Spanish Moors circulating 
around Rome. And the fact is that one 
Borgia, Roderigo, became Pope Alexan- 
der VI! Another was canonized as St. 
Francis Borgia! 

In just about every field of human en- 
deavor, there's been at least one family 
of outstanding achievement. In music, 
the family name is Bach. 

When Johann Sebastian Bach was 
born in 1685, his family had dominated 
the musical life of the German town of 
Eisenach for five generations. They had 
supplied so many organists, choir mas- 
ters and singers that all musicians in 
Eisenach were jokingly called "Bachs." 
And three of the great Johann Sebas- 
tian's sons carried the family tradition 
on into the seventh generation. 

In literature there are the Brontes, in 
baseball the DiMaggios, in finance and 
philanthropy the Rockefellers, and in 
comedy the Marxes — Chico, Groucho, 
Harpo, Gummo and Zeppo. And then 
there are families who've won their fame 
by getting into trouble. 

Generations of college students in psy- 
chology, sociology and genetics classes 
have learned about those awful examples 
of bad heredity, the Jukeses and the Kal- 

The Jukes family was written up by a 
New York criminologist, Richard L. 
Dugdale, in 1874, and reported to have 
a seven-generation history of crime, pau- 
perism, disease, insanity and just plain 

The Kallikaks, on the other hand, were 
divided by their chronicler, Dr. Henry 
H. Goddard, into two clans, the good 
ones and the bad ones. A Revolutionary 
War soldier, Martin Kallikak, was the 
patriarch of both. He and his first wife, 
who was feeble-minded, had a ne'er-do- 
well son, who in turn became the father 
of 10 more ne'er-do-wells, from whom 
generations of ne'er-do-well Kallikaks de- 
scended. Next time, the story goes, old 
Martin did better and married a young 
woman of high intelligence, and from 
this union came generations of prosper- 
ous and prominent citizens. 

Practically everybody, of course, 
knows about the feuding Hatfields and 
McCoys. But few people could tell you 
what really started the backwoods ven- 
detta — or what ended it. The two fami- 
lies lived across a narrow creek from 
each other, but the Hatfield side was in 
West Virginia and the McCoy side in 

This geographical accident was par- 
tially responsible for the beginning of 
the feud, since it put the McCoys on the 
Northern side in the Civil War and the 
Hatfields on the Southern. Not even the 
Romeo-and-Juliet romance of Anse Hat- 
field and Rose Anne McCoy could stop 
them. Years later, when the law stepped 
in to stop the shooting, it was to create 
such bitter feeling between the two states 
that they actually prepared to send 
troops against each other. 

The feud guns weren't stacked until 
1899, when old "Devil Anse" Hatfield 
and those of his sons who had survived 
got religion, were baptized, and made 

May Day Queen, 
Native Of Scotland, 
To Become Citizen 

Reigning over the festivities of LVC's 
May Day will be Jean Cunningham, sen- 
ior English major. 

How does it feel to be elected queen 
of this big day? "Well," the blue-eyed 
brunette smiled, "I was very surprised. 
I'm so excited, but I can just imagine 
how nervous I'll be by Saturday!" 

Jean was born and spent her early 
childhood in Leven, Scotland ("a small 
town on the eastern coast"). In 1952 
she and her parents moved to America 
where they presently reside in Bergen- 
field, New Jersey. This summer Jean 
plans to become a citizen of the United 

During her career at LVC, she has 
been crowned Queen of the Christmas 
Dinner-Dance and was chosen "Miss 
Quittie" for last year's annual yearbook. 
Other activities have included Student 
Christian Association, treasurer of Clio, 
class secretary, Women's Athletic Asso- 
ciation, copy editor of the Quittie, La 
Vie Collegienne, and Student Education 

In the midst of these activities, Jean 
has maintained a B average and also 
finds time to make most of her clothes. 
Swimming and skating further vie for 
her recreation time. 

After graduation next month, Jean 
would like to be employed in an editor- 
ial position for a publishing company in 
New York City. 

Simple Classic Dress Is 
Basis For Spring Variety 

"As a person, I sympathize with you, 
Mr. Kblyczski," said the Internal Reve- 
nue agent, "but I just can't allow you to 
list your mother-in-law as head of the 

This joke and many like it are con- 
stantly being stricken from the scripts of 
comedians by the major networks. They 
know from experience that Mr. Kblyczski 
(and there no doubt is one) would sue 
the network for damaging his relations 
with his mother-in-law. 

The number of things we can officially 
laugh at, or even talk about, is becoming 
more and more limited. Women's under- 
things, body and mouth odors, the 
queen's pregnancy, sex in general, are 
all taboo in "polite company." 

Basically, we are losing the ability to 
laugh at ourselves. We have failed to 
recognize our own ludicrousness. 

The automobile dealer would be horri- 
fied, rather than amused, if someone told 
him, 'One never sees Edsels on the road. 
It's a sort of limited edition Ford, for 
dealers only.' 

We are becoming one big nation of 
organization men, afraid to laugh at our- 
selves for fear of losing status. We are, 
in effect, losing one of the basic traits 
of humanity: risibility. 

Perhaps the startlingly new "sick" com- 
edians are healthier than the stodgy 
"healthy" ones. (ACP).

Clamdiggers' Wardrobe, 
The Thing For Spring 

During the past few weeks our mail- 
box has been deluged with a flood of 
frantic letters from frenzied members of 
the international set seeking answers to 
such questions as: Could my full-length 
mauve wool teagown be cut down to 
make a terry-cloth trimmed sarong-type 
beach jacket? Will my Gordon-Davis 
towel make the same sensation at Cannes 
this summer as it did at Miami in the 
winter? and can I wear Bermudas in 
Newport on Sunday? 

The latter question was posed by liter- 
ally millions of college students all over 
Lebanon County. Since we realize that 
throngs of Americans will be flocking to 
the sunny Mediterranean shores in just a 
few weeks, we dedicate this article to the 
presentation of ideal beach toggery for 
those on a shoe-string budget. 

First of all, for any Riviera vacation, 
one must, of course, have at least three 
basic bathing suits — one to wear, one to 
dry, one to spare (to plagiarize from a 
recent intellectual fashion periodical 
which is now, it appears, branching out 
into poetry). For the morning sun, the 
lovely lustre of Gordon-Davis terrycloth; 
for the noonday sun, the fresh crispness 
of mauve seersucker, for the evening 
(evening?) sun, the light gossamer look 
of black quilted calico. Just one precau- 
tion, remember not to get any of these 
suits wet — the exotic new materials wa- 
terspot easily. (Some even dissolve.) 

Makeup and accessories need not be a 
problem if one keeps in mind a few 
basic rules. First of all, flatter a golden 
summer tan and look your feminine, 
most natural prettiest by applying with 
precision a generous coating of the new- 
est pale green lipstick. 

Remember mascara and eye shadow 
to match; and, if you should — by some 
trick of fate — find yourself submerged 
in the murky deep, carefully tissue off all 
excess or you will be arrested by an up- 
standing member of the Beach Patrol for 
pollution of the ocean (which, incident- 
ally, becomes a murkier and murkier 
deep each summer, due to the untiring 
efforts of our girls). Accessory-wise, the 
keynote will be large dangling exotic 
colorful gaudy eye-catching sparkling 
earrings, baubles, necklaces, bangles, 
bracelets, anklets, beads, and tiaras. 

With these suggestions and hints, we're 
sure you can go on from here. Just a 
precautionary note: be sure to wear a 
skirt over your bathing suit until you 
have arrived at the beach; or, better yet, 
until you are completely submerged, un- 
less, of course, you are at an all-girl 
beach. And girls, please remember that 
manicured toenails are a must for your 
beach successes. A dash of fresh kelly- 
green paint will do wonders. 

(SS & MLH) 

Somewhere in your crowded closet 
there may be one good, basic, classical 
dress. If there is, drag it out. If there 
isn't, get one. If your budget is slender 
— and whose isn't? — a simple classic is 
the very thing to use as a foundation 
for a new, high-fashion wardrobe. 

The neutral color dress, or suit-dress 
with clean, quiet lines and a total ab- 
sence of gewgaws, drapes or tricky neck- 
lines, is a good investment. It can be 
turned into a surprising variety of dra- 
matic outfits. With a flick of the wrist- 
two flicks, maybe — you can turn it into 
a sports outfit, a sleek costume for day- 
time wear, or an elegant date dress. The 
trick lies in the choice of exciting acces- 

Accessorizing for a high-fashion look 
does not require a large cash outlay. 
Choosing accessories doesn't take any 
special training — it takes taste. Taste 
isn't such a mystery as people like to 
make out. According to a leading fash- 
ion editor good taste is two parts com- 
mon sense to one part nonsense! 

Select your accessories in three steps, 
the way a fashion editor does: 1) Decide 
on the purpose of the outfit — whether it's 
for shopping, dancing, or just promenad- 
ing. This will set the mood and tip 
you off as to the right colors and tex- 
tures to use. 2) Choose one stylized, 
fanciful, or even giddy item that's appro- 
priate for the purpose — whether it's a 
daring hat, a pair of gilded slippers, or 
an interesting piece of costume jewelry. 
Let it be the keynote of the outfit. 3) 
Harmonize the supporting accessories in 
mood, design, texture and color — and, 
above all, underplay them. 

The well-accessorized oufit with a 
high-fashion look is like a good popular 
song: it has one main theme. The 
theme is set by the most striking acces- 
sory you choose. It can be severe, flam- 
boyant, demure or romantic — anything 
you like so long as it's dramatic — and 
the rest of the accessories should play 
second fiddle. 

If you want to be sporty and dashing, 
choose a floppy-brim slouch hat to go 
with your basic dress, then follow- 
through with casual accessories. If the 
severe look is your wish, add a tailored 
bag and pumps, in dark shades. To be 
romantic, spice your basic dress with 
rich but simple accessories — gold kid 
and satin, then frame your face in flow- 

The two dread perils of accessorizing 
are what fashion experts call "the bitsy 
look" and the "cluttered look." Avoid 
"itty bitty" dear "little" pin, a quiet 
"little" bag, a sweet "little" hat, a neat 
"little" shoe all add up to a meek little 
zero. On the other hand, don't over-do 
dramatic accessories. Rhinestone-studded 
shoes, an armful of bracelets, a cart- 
wheel hat, and a brocaded bag create the 
effect of a horse race — with all the ac- 
cessories competing for importance — and

Scientific Fortune Teller Predicts 
U.S. Conditions In Coming Years 

How prosperous will we be by 1964? 

How much will we spend? What will we buy? 

When will the next recession occur? 

For the answers, more and more business firms are turning to Louis H. Bean, 
former Economic Adviser in the office of the Secretary of Agriculture, and a man 
famed for his ability to predict the future. He prophesied a Democratic victory for 
1948, the year of Truman's election, correctly forecast major depressions and reces- 
sions, as well as their major business upturns, and developed a method for predicting 
weather changes and crop yields per acre at least a year in advance. 
What does this forward-looking citizen 

see in our national future? Our present 
wave of prosperity, according to Bean, is 
likely to reach its peak during the six 
months right after the November elec- 
tion, if post-war experience is used as a 
guide. A recession beginning mid- 1961, 
will probably reach its low point in early 
1962. Industrial output might fall off as 
much as 15%. 

The happy sequel envisioned by this 
prophet: a sharp rise in 1963 to a "new 
high of full employment" and prosperity 
in 1964. At that point, industrial pro- 
duction will be expanding at a level in 
line with the normal rate of three and a 
half per cent a year. Consumer expen- 
ditures — boosted by population growth, 
increases in employment, wages and so- 
cial security payments as well as rises 
in price and volume of goods — may be a 
whopping $55 billion over the $300 bil- 
lion figure reached in 1959. 

By '64, predicts Bean, Americans will 
be shelling out approximately $7.9 billion 
more for food than the $70 billion they 
spent in 1959. They'll spend an addi- 
tional billion for alcoholic beverages (the 
'59 tally was $9.3 billion). There'll be 
a striking change in our national bever- 
age preferences, with vodka riding the 
crest of the wave. Vodka sales, already 
setting a breathless pace, may double 
during the next several years, and by '64 
may even surpass those of a current fa- 
vorite, gin. 

How can one man venture to guess 
what a whole nation will be eating, 
drinking, spending? Bean's methods are 
both simple and scientific: to predict the 
future, he studies the past. Over the last 
15 years, four minor recessions have 
occurred at three to four-year intervals. 
During the same period, consumer 
spending has shown an average annual 
increase of $11 billion. For every addi- 
tional $100 spent by consumers, about 
$22 goes for food and something less 
than $2 for alcoholic beverages. 

But why should Joe Doakes toast the 
New Year of 1964 with vodka — a drink 
most Americans had never heard of ten 
years ago — in preference to older stand- 
bys such as gin, Scotch and Canadian 
Whiskeys? Because, says Bean, this li- 
quid displacement has already taken 
place to a great extent. 

It's happened before, with other com- 
modities. In the food industry, there's 
been a significant displacement of butter 
by margarine, and a decline in the pork 
share of the consumer's dollar with the 
beef share holding its own. 

The hitch — if any — in Mr. Bean's pre- 
dictions? Whether they relate to the 
rhythm of boom-recession or to the ebb 
and flow of liquor sales, they're all based 
on post-war trends and on the assump- 
tions that existing economic factors and 
trade practices would continue. 

Does the economist ever err? Some- 
times, and those times are memorable 
for Mr. Bean. No wonder. Only when 
he errs can friends and office associates 
mournfully chant: 

"Of all sad words of tongue or pen, 
the saddest are these: Tt might have, 
Bean.' " 


Jazz In Review 

by Gary Zeller 

Last issue I reviewed two recordings 
by small groups. This issue the spotlight 
is on the big bands of Maynard Fergu- 
son and Stan Kenton. 

Ferguson's latest album, "Maynard 
Ferguson Plays Jazz For Dancing" (Rou- 
lette R52038), 
shows why May- 
nard is admired 
not only by jazz 
enthusiasts, but al- 
so by college stu- 
dents who want a 
good sound for 
dancing. While 
employing a good 
dose of pure jazz, 
he also keeps the 
melody and the beat obvious, which is 
important for a sound that people will 
dance to. 

The first band on side A is "Hey 
There" from Pajama Game. The big 
and brassy intro provides quite a con- 
trast to the rest of the arrangement, 
which is fairly smooth. 

"I'm Beginning to See the Light" is a 
real swinger that is filled with lots of 
kicks provided by the drummer. Al- 
though the personnel is not listed, I sus- 
pect that the drummer is Frankie Dunlop 
and that the record was cut just prior 
to his leaving Ferguson to go with Duke 

Two numbers usually associated with 
Benny Goodman are heard in this al- 
bum. Both "Stompin' at the Savoy" and 
"Soft Winds" receive a fine treatment at 
the hands of the Ferguson band. Also 
included on the recording are "Where's 
Teddy?" "If I Should Lose You," "I'll 
Be Seeing You," " 'Tis Autumn," "Secret 
Love," "It Might As Well Be Spring" 
and " 'Round About Midnight." 
Kenton Teams With Christy, Freshmen 

"Road Show" (Capitol TBO 1327), 
featuring Stan Kenton, June Christy and 
the Four Freshmen, is a 90 minute pro- 
gram recorded in concert at Purdue Uni- 
verstiy. This two-record album contains 
one side by Kenton, one by Christy, one 
by the Freshmen and one by the entire 

When jazz artists record in front of a 
live audience a certain feeling of excite- 
ment comes through on the record; this 
recording is no exception. Everyone in- 
volved exhibits the enthusiasm which is 
so vital for good jazz. The audience re- 
acts to the jazz and this makes the play- 
ers respond to the reaction of the audi- 

Jimmy Campbell, drums, and Mike 
Pacheco, Cuban drums, are featured on 
a major part of 'The Big Chase." I think 
it can be said that Campbell drives the 
Kenton band better than any drummer 
that Stan has used to date. 

June Christy opens her portion of the 
show with a tune she did when she was 
with Kenton regularly, "I Want to Be 
Happy." She's still the same Christy 
with the same sexy voice. The natural 

From The Terrace 

by John O'Hara 
Review by Sarah Haigler 

The businessman in a modern novel is 
usually slated for complete failure. From 
all appearances Alfred Eaton's wheel of 
fortune should ascend, as it certainly 
does, but reaching middle age the mut- 
able wheel suddenly descends again. His 
failure in business and home life may be 
attributed to unfortunate events in his 
youth which caused withdrawal into him- 
self and independence at an early age. 
Although he has many acquaintances in 
the upper class society of New York and 
Philadelphia, he is without close friends. 

The half-century of Eaton's life cov- 
ered in this book begins in an eastern 
Pennsylvania town in the same vicinity 
as other O'Hara novels. He grows up 
alone, being rejected by a father who has 
only enough love for the eldest and dead 
son and lacking confidence in a mother 
who vacillates between liquors and lov- 
ers. The final molding shock occurs 
when the two girls of any interest to 
him die. 

He makes millions in business, but is 
eased out of his former position while 
serving in a top government post. Fol- 
lowing this he is divorced and his only 
son killed in World War II. He marries 
his former mistress and is in danger of 
losing her at the end of the book. He 
is now faced with the frightening task of 
finding useful work in what is a forced 

Such is the plot of the book, disre- 
garding the details of the lives of every 
one in his sphere. And that is all one 
needs to know - about this book, as it 
really isn't especially potent. O'Hara be- 
lieves this is his best book and Bantam 
Books claims it "is one of the greatest 
books of our generation, our times and our 
country." Despite this, it is unlikely 
that many will be interested in the min- 
ute coverage of minutiae and the factual 
reporting without insight. The style lacks 
freshness, vigor and coherence that are 
necessary to hold the reader through 989 
pages. There is nothing new to be learn- 
ed from this book, not even from the 
sexual adventures so liberally supplied. 
Therefore it is best to save your 95 cents.

Send It Back To The Russians ? 
Students Talk Back On May Day 

by Connie Myers 

With its displays of beauty and brawn, 
May Day 1960 will blossom forth today 
in competition with other signs of spring 
on the Lebanon Valley College campus. 
Weeks of writing, arranging and rehears- 
ing have gone into creating the aesthe- 
tic side of this affair; hours of program- 
ming and practicing have preceded the 
athletic aspect of this annual event. 

Is all the effort 

I've ( Got A Problem 

James Teller, who works in a bank, 
dreamed that in cashing a check he gave 
a man as many dollars as the check 
called for cents and as many cents as the 
check called for dollars. 

When he caught up with the man, he 
found that he had already spent $1.71 of 
the money but still had twice as much as 
the check called for. 

In his dream James was unable to pro- 
duce the check and had to figure out the 
amount for which it was written. What 
was the amount of the check? 

Answers to this problem, along with 
the method of solution, should be placed 
in the La Vie mailbox in the Student 
Personnel Office no later than Wednes- 
day, May 4. (PW) 

Space Ase May Need 
New College Courses 

(ACP) — "Lunar Construction," or how 
to erect buildings on the moon, may soon 
be a college course, reports the Southern 
California DAILY TROJAN. 

"The primary problems," according to 
SC School of Engineering Dean Alfred 
Ingersoll, "will relate to insulation 
against the extreme temperatures, and the 
need for a pressurized interior so that 
the spacemen can at least inhabit a 
dwelling with conventional atmosphere 
in it." 

Ingersoll added that space also will 
provide problems for sanitary engineers, 
normally commissioned with disposing 
of the communities' waste products. 

"Since a satellite space station will be 
in free equilibrium, with no effective 
gravity acting, the engineer will find that 
the refuse tossed out the window will 
orbit right along with the satellite," he

companions to June's voice are (1) the

the quiet hours, and (2) a comfortable

Christy sings "Bewitched" and "Midnight 
Sun" with the sensitivity of a true artist. 

The Four Freshmen come on, strong 
as usual, with "Day In, Day Out." The 
comic relief provided by the Freshmen 
between their numbers went over well 
with the audience and comes off equally 
well on the record. They sing, clown, 
and sing some more. 

On the last side of the album the en- 
tire show joins forces to provide a smash- 
ing climax. With Christy and the Fresh- 
men, Kenton does "September Song," 

"Walking Shoes" and "Peanut Vendor." 
The recording ends the way it started, 
with Kenton playing "Artistry in Rhy-

while? Packed in- 
to the bleachers, 
cavorting on cam- 
pus, or aspiring to 
victory on the ath- 
letic field will be 
students with many 
different opinions. 
Marylin Shaven "I approve of May 
Day. It's a nice festivity even though 
it doesn't mean too much." 

Dick Bird: "As far as I'm concerned, 
they can forget about May Day. All 
the preparation that they have to go 
through isn't worth it. Too many things 
are going on for people to really enjoy 
any of them." 

Marilyn Rinker: "I think May Day is 
all right if we make sure that it doesn't 
turn out to be a flop. For instance, we 
have to guard against things like last 
year's long display of golfing. This year's 
program should be good because it has 
been well rehearsed." 

Harry Yost: "May Day is a good 
thing. More people should be interested 
in it because it's a nice way to close the 
school year." 

Winnie Neal: "Send it back to Russia. 
The whole thing is ridiculous — just a lot 
of time and effort for nothing. The pro- 
grams don't go along with the real idea 
of May Day, which should be something 
very pretty and rather serious." 

Joe Ragno: "I think May Day is an- 
other one of the high-schoolisms present 
on this campus. It should be eliminated 
and replaced by something on the high- 
er cultural level of which college is sup- 
posedly representative." 

Barbara Woodley: "May Day is good 
in that it gives the students something 
to work for. However, I don't think it 
is worth all the time and preparation 
that goes into it if the weather is as it 
has been for the past few years." 

Don Bacastow: "Although last year's 
program could have been much better, 
May Day does add something to the 
campus life of which we are eliminating 
so much."

Valley Acquires Iota Kappa Chapter 
Of Pi Mu Alpha Sinfonia Fraternity 

Lebanon Valley College now has a chapter of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia Frater- 
nity of America, which is a fraternity representing the music profession. This 
fraternity was founded on October 6, 1898, at the New England Conservatory of 
Music in Boston, Massachusetts. Today, there are approximately 160 chapters in 
the United States. The local chapter at LVC is Iota Kappa. 
Sinfonia, as it is commonly called, 

has four major purposes. These pur- 
poses are the advancing of the cause of 
music in America, fostering the mutual 
welfare and brotherhood of music stu- 
dents, developing the truest fraternal 
spirit among its members and encour- 
aging loyalty to the Alma Mater. Since 
music is such an integral part of the lives 
of so many students at Valley, it was 
considered proper that such a fraternity 
should be available to all those who are 
desirous of and worthy of joining. 

On Sunday, May 15, twenty-six stu- 
dents and three members of the staff of 
the department of music were installed 
into Sinfonia at the Penn Harris Hotel 
in Harrisburg. The installation was a 
joint one for LVC and Dickinson Col- 
lege. A degree team from Penn State 
University performed the installation. 

Prior to the organization of the local 
chapter, Mr. Carmean, Mr. Stachow and 
Mr. Lanese, staff members at the Valley, 
belonged to Sinfonia. The three new 
faculty members of Sinfonia are Dr. 
Thurmond, Mr. Rovers and Mr. Smith. 
The new student members total 26.

Debussy and "Twilight Fancies" by De- 
lius were two of Mary Metzger's solos. 

A song composed by Mr. Thomas 
Lanese of the faculty, entitled "My Love 
Is Not So," was a featured number. Mary 
also sang selections by Haydn, Quilter, 
Dungan, Cavalli, and Hageman. Her ac- 
companist was David Poff, pianist.

May Day Spirits Find Weather Fair 

Colle ^iate Jrro^ress 

In issues of La Vie published during the past year, various opinions have been 
expressed through the letter column concerning many topics. Following are some 
of these requests; the individual may decide what results have been achieved. 

October 24: "Disgusted Vallyite" and "The Collegienne" entered pleas for 
greater support of our athletic teams, especially since they seemed to be winning for 
a change. 

November 20: Joe Coen put forth suggestions for the improvement of chapel 
programs. Among his remarks were a plea for a wider variety of speakers and 
greater student participation. He condemned the College for inviting so many con- 
ventional Protestants with similar views. He advocated a special committee for 
choosing future speakers. 

December 17: The "Men of Kreider" filed a desperate request for hot water 
in their dormitory. "Anonymous" complained about the brevity of women's spe- 
cial permissions for such affairs as the Conserv Formal. 

January 14: Sophomore Barbara McClean expressed her views on the lack of 
social and academic facilities available to Valley students on weekends. Included 
in her remarks were library and Engle Hall hours, College Lounge hours and the 
lack of accessible television sets. 

March 4: J. T. R. condemned the practice of reserving the 7-to-9 slot on Wed- 
nesday evening for SCA functions only. "The Collegienne" derided the lack of 
support for the LV chapel choir. The editors commented upon the lack of good 
manners exhibited in the dining hall and the profusion of "assistant table heads* 
at evening and Sunday noon meals. 

Pluchas Gracias 

The final issue of a student publication at the end of any school term usually 
calls for a general rehash of the year's events on the editorial page, along with 
various commendations for the accomplishments of nearly everyone imaginable. 
To close the year on a sour note with a critical editorial would simply not be proper, 
so here is La Vie's version of the sweet and light, with some well-deserved com- 
pliments as well. 

Though it borders on conceit, this editor must begin the list of accolades with 
appreciation for the staff members and various contributors who have been so 
valuable in the publication of this newspaper this year. This group of workers, the 
largest hi the paper's recent history, has helped it, we hope, to come one step nearer 
to being an accurate reflection of LV campus life. It is to the staff reporters that 
this credit belongs. 

Next on the list is an orchid to the sophomore class, whose complete misman- 
agement of the freshman initiation has led to what may be workable plan for con- 
ducting next year's program. The "White Hats" may prove to be the solution to 
a situation which has been a sore point with upperclassmen for several years. The 
constitution of the organization is explicit in its requirements, and with effective 
leadership, it could prove to be a fair and worthwhile means of initiating new Val- 

Finally, may we add a special note of thanks to President Miller, whose only 
reference to keeping off the grass this Spring was made with malice toward none. 
Perhaps every Valley student should henceforth make a special effort to be able to 
hear him in the back. 

Lebanon Valley's May Day celebration included the traditional procession of the queen, Jean Cunningham, and her court) 
as well as the ever-present Maypole dance. Tied in with the theme, "Cherchez La Femme," were several displays of sport 
and choreography. Also in evidence were a few left-over flappers from the 'twenties and an unidentified "baby" in diapers 
who insisted on bouncing on the trampoline. 

Texas Press Airs Southern Views 
On Negro Sit-Down Demonstration 

Lunch counter sit-down strikes still are attracting widespread attention in the 
college press. Taking the position that Negro strikers have lost ground in the 
South is a by-lined story by Griffin Smith of the Rice Institute (Tex.) THRESHER: 

"As the smoke gradually clears from the blaze of Negro sit-down strikes at 
lunch counters across the South, one fact stands out more solidly than ever; the 
Negroes, fighting for 'rights' which they in truth have no claim to, have lost support 
among moderates in the South and have done themselves more harm than good. 

"For every victory the sit-downers have achieved, as in Galveston and San 
Antonio, there has been a corresponding defeat. In Memphis, Mayor Henry Loeb 
has announced the postponing of bi-racial committee meetings and programs of 
aid benefiting Negroes until attitudes calm. 

"In Marshall, potentially the most explosive situation in the country today, 
the interracial commission which had kept down racial friction since 1875 has 
ceased to function. And in numerous Southern cities, Little Rock included, the 
demonstrators have been promptly arrested. 

"The first tragedy is that the whole thing is not a spontaneous expression of 
the Negro people, but a carefully organized program by the NAACP and other 
extremist Negro groups. Aided by Northern news reporters more interested in 
'the big story' than in accurate reporting, these agitators have attempted to stir up 
nationwide anti-South resentment in time to strengthen the civil rights bill now 
pending in Congress. 

"The second tragedy is that the sit-down method the students are using is 
neither legal nor moral. There has been so much talk about the 'right' of the 
Negroes to be served that it should be made clear as black and white that no 
such right exists. Private property remains private, and the owner of any private, 
non-monopoly establishment has every right in the world to deny service to any- 
one, Negro or white, that he chooses. It is a privilege, not a right, to obtain serv- 
ice at a restaurant. 

"And it is certainly not morally right to take up seats at a business establish- 
ment to deny a proprietor of his trade, and to contribute to a violent situation 
when the 'right' one is supposedly defending is not even his right. 

"The error the Negroes have made is to employ the sit-down method — not a 
justifiable form of protest, because it stops legitimate business and opens the door 
to wide-spread violence and resentment. But still this does not mean that the 
Negroes must passively accept something which they feel is wrong. 

"They certainly have the right to refuse to patronize the store which refuses 
them lunch. And, employed on a concerted scale by large numbers of Negroes, 
the ensuing economic pressures would put the problem clearly in focus: whether 
the community and the store owner would rather preserve segregation, or lose 
the trade which the boycott would take away. This is the Negro's unquestioned 
right, and it is the only way he can properly state his case. 

"The sooner the Negro student learns that sit-downs will win him only arrest 
and fines, the sooner it will be that he realizes the boycott (and not the violence- 
provoking plays for publicity at lunch counters) is the thing which will ultimately 
do most toward achieving his goals. 

"And when these goals begin to coincide with the views of, and be supported 
by, the average Negro rather than the radical agitators of the NAACP, we will be 
on the road to racial understanding." (ACP)

All-Sports Nile Banquet 
Will Recognize Athletes; 
Hurst, Parry To Speak 

The eleventh annual LVC All-Sports 
Banquet will be held in the College Din- 
ing Hall, Saturday evening, May 21. The 
Valley athletes who represented the vari- 
ous intercollegiate sports will be honor- 
ed. There will be a presentation of spe- 
cial awards. 

The guest speaker will be Grant Hurst, 
school administrator of McCaskey High 
School in Lancaster. The subject of Mr. 
Hurst's address will have to do with the 
Ten Commandments in athletics. Those 
who have heard Mr. Hurst on previous 
occasions report that his message is ex- 
tremely inspiring to a competitor in any 
type of sport. 

Returning to his annual job, W. W. 
"Tiny" Parry will serve as toastmaster 
for the dinner. Mr. Parry is the sports 
editor of the Lebanon Daily News. The 
LV awards and jackets will be presented 
in a different manner than in previous 
years. The coach of each sport will an- 
nounce the names of the recipients; fol- 
lowing the banquet, the awards will be 
given to the athletes and managers. Cap- 
tains and co-captains for next year's 
teams will be announced by the present 

The much-coveted Chuck Maston 
Memorial Award will be presented by 
Bruce Buckwalter, 1960-61 president of 
the Knights of the Valley. The Knights 
will also award their seasonal sports 
prizes to those athletes who are consid- 
ered outstanding by their team-mates for 
their ability and record in whatever sport 
they represent. Vern Magnuson, also of 
the Knights, will distribute these awards. 

LV Trails In Tri-Meet, 
Loses To PMC, Juniata 

Despite Dick Harper's tie of the school 
record in the pole vault at 11 feet, six 
inches, LVC was unable to muster 
enough points in the other events and 
went down to a 58 1/6 - 55 1/3 - 40% 
defeat at the hands of Juniata (first) and 
Pennsylvania Military College on the 
Valley track May 6. 

Other winners for the Dutchmen were 
Ralph Earp in the 440 with a time of 
54 seconds, Fred Meiselman in the dis- 
cus and Les Holstein in the 220-yard low 

Holstein led the Valley in scoring with 
11 points by adding seconds in the high 
hurdles and pole vault. LV failed to 
score in the mile run, high jump and 
broad jump, while scoring a mere half 
point in the javelin with Jim Wynan's 
rare tie for fourth place with Bob Adle- 
man of the Cadets. 

Netmen Suffer Loss 
On Lancaster Courts 

In their second setback of the season, 
the Valley netmen dropped a 6-3 loss at 
the hands of the Franklin and Marshall 
Diplomats on May 10 at the winner's 
courts. Ron Bell was the only Valley 
winner in the singles with sets of 6-1, 
1-6, 6-4 over Bruce Roman. 

In the doubles, Howie Good and Bell 
united to score a 7-5, 6-1 match over 
Roman and Hal Weber of the Dips. 
Larry Strait and Bob Musser scored easy 
6-1, 6-2 sets to defeat Dave Laubach and 
Kent Ruhl in the second doubles. The 
Valley record in tennis now stands at 7 
wins and 2 losses. 







Wuiie Giaser has the field all to himself 
as he crosses the line to clinch the 880 
for Kreider Hall. Giaser later went on 
to win the mile event, followed by two 
other men of Kreider, Jack Thompson 
and Phil Bronson. 

Dutchmen Capture 
Second Pluce In 
Three- Way Meet 

The LVC-Albright-Susquehanna trian- 
gular track meet was a close contest be- 
tween the Dutchmen and the host Lions 
up until the last two events, during 
wich Albright clinched their victory May 
3. Prior to the broad jump and javelin 
throw, Albright had a slim 55%-52$£ 
lead, but the Valley did not score again. 
Susquehanna trailed the entire meet, 
which ended with a 70 1 / 2 -52 1 / £-31 point 

Standouts for the Valley were Dave 
Raebonold, with a time of 2:05.4 in the 
880, his best personal time, and Jim 
Brommer, who registered the difficult 
double by winning the mile and two mile 
runs in 4:51.3 and 11:36.3 respectively. 

Carl Rife took the second spot in the 
880 and Larry Godshall registered thirds 
in both the long distance runs. Fred 
Meiselman won the shot put and discus 
while Hi Fitzgerald threw 42 feet, two 
inches for a third in the shot. 

Second places went to Les Holstein in 
both hurdles and to Dick Harper in the 
pole vault. Holstein jumped 11 feet for 
a third place in the latter event. 

Tennis Team Hands 
Lycoming 7-2 Loss 

Lycoming found the LVC tennis team 
too staunch an opponent and wound up 
with a 7-2 setback on May 5 at the 
Coleman Park courts in Lebanon. 

In the absence of Howie Good, Larry 
Strait moved up to the number one spot 
and suffered the only singles loss to 
Chum Pollitt, 6-3, 6-1. The rest of the 
singles went to Valley players and all in 
two sets each. The most decisive win 
was registered by Bob Musser with his 
6-2, 6-0 sets over Dave Travis. 

In doubles play, Musser and Strait 
easily defeated Pollitt and Travis 6-2, 
6-1, while Bob Kilmoyer and Fred Eck- 
elman downed Pete Husk and Don Aur- 
and, 7-5, 7-5. Ron Bell and Terry Myers 
won their first set 8-6 but then lost the 
last two, 4-6, 3-6 to Joe Bunce and Bob

Kreider Men Are Champs 
At Inter-dorm Track Meet 

Repeating their victory of last year, the upperclassmen of Kreider Hall de- 
feated the Kiester frosh 58-51 in the annual inter-dorm track and field meet held on 
Monday evening, May 16. Six new records were established in the third annual 

Dean Wetzel streaked across the finish line of the 220-yard dash in :24.9 
seconds to break the old record of :25.3 set by Roger Ward in 1959. Willie Giaser 
outran the field in 880 in the time of 2:21 easily eclipsing the old mark of 2.38. 
In the high jump, Hank Van de Water leaped 5' 7" to better the standard of 5' 6" 
held by Doug Ross. r ~ ~~ n 

Doug Miller threw the discus 100 feet 
8 inches to automatically set a record 
since it is the first year that the heavier 
college platter has been used. 

Jack Sheaf fer flew a creditable 17' 6" 
to break the old broad jump standard by 
two inches. Jack also won the pole 
vault, defeating defending champ John 
Seymour with a vault of 7' 6". Vance 
Stouffer put the shot a long 46 feet 6 
inches to annex the record of 43 feet 6 
inches set by Buck Vogel in the 1959 

In the other events, Ken Girard sprint- 
ed to victory in the century in .T1.2 
seconds followed by Tom Balsbaugh to 
give the frosh a one-two advantage. Barry 
Keinard, representing the upperclassmen, 
breezed over the 120-yard low hurdles in 
:15.5 seconds while Kreider also got the 
remaining places with Hank Van de 
Water and Brooks Slatcher finishing sec- 
ond and third respectively. 

Willie Giaser won his second race of 
the evening by taking the mile run in 6 
minutes, one second with Jack Thompson 
and Phil Bronson taking two-three to 
give the upperclassmen a clean sweep in 
this event. Allie Kohler of Kreider ran 
a :60.6 440 to win the one-lap jaunt. 

In the relays, the Kiester men split with 
the upperclassmen. The 880 relay went 
to the freshman team of Mark Wert, Bob 
Scott, Jim Hogan, and Vance Stouffer in 
one minute, 47.3 seconds. The Kreider 
quartet composed of Steve Wisler, Gene 
Sergent, Bruce Buckwalter, and Brooks 
Slatcher ran a 4 minute 13 second mile 
relay*.. .... _ .., . , „ tun um

Which Bill Would You Vote For ? 
Hugh Scott Outlines Three Plans 
Which May Concern You In 2005 

. Congress is now considering important legislation to help persons over 65 
years of age meet the high cost of medical and hospital treatment. Three bills now 
have strong support. One was introduced by Representative Forand (D. — R. I.), 
another was introduced by eight Republican Senators (of which I am one) and the 
third by the Eisenhower Administration. If such legislation is enacted this year — 
and I am hopeful that it will be — it will very likely be one of these bills or a meas- 
ure which incorporates some features of all three. 

Here is a brief summary of the proposals in the order in which they were in- 
troduced in Congress: 

Forand Bill: Would provide up to 60 days of hospitalization or 120 days 
combined hospital and nursing home care and surgery for people eligible for bene- 
fits under the Old Age and Survivors Insurance section of the Social Security Act. 
It would force an increase of 1/4 of 1% Social Security Tax on all employed in- 
dividuals, the same amount on employers, and 3/8 of 1% increase on the tax of the 
self-employed. The Social Security Tax is now 6% (half paid by employee and 
half by employer). Under the present law it will go to a total of 9%. 

8 Senators Bill: Would provide voluntary health insurance that would pay for 
60 days of hospitalization (or equivalent care in a nursing home) for persons 65 
or over. It would provide for surgery both in and out of the hospital, hospital 
medical care, visits to the doctor's office along with necessary laboratory tests, 
diagnostic x-rays, specialist consultations, and visiting nurse service in the home. 

Under our bill, an individual would pay a subscription fee depending on his 
income. The difference between the total subscription paid by a beneficiary and 
the full cost would be shared by the State and Federal governments, but all sub- 
scribers with an income of $3,600 and above would pay the entire cost of their 
insurance. Persons earning less than $500 would pay nothing. 

Administration Bill: Would provide voluntary health insurance for persons 65 
and over whose gross income does not exceed $2,500 (or $3,800 per couple). 
Eligible persons would pay $24 yearly enrollment fee; benefits would begin after 
they have incurred initial hospital and medical expenses of $250. Federal and 
State governments would share the cost. Individuals may elect to purchase private 
group insurance to which Federal and State governments would contribute up to 
$60 per year. 

Objections To Forand Bill 

I have two principal objections to the Forand Bill: 1) It is compulsory. All 
persons must pay the additional Social Security tax whether or not they have private 
health insurance to which they would prefer to subscribe. 2) It limits coverage to 
persons under Social Security. I consider this a cruel bill. It would leave out 
the 4 million persons over age 65 who are at the lowest income levels. This bill 
endangers the doctor-patient relationship, puts heavy burdens upon contributors 
and opens the door to socialized medicine. Moreover, it would cost $2 billion a 
year to start and would probably cost above $7 billion within a decade. The bill 
for socialized medicine in Great Britain already exceeds 10% of their national 

The Administration Bill has many advantages, including the optional insur- 
ance and the deductibility features. The benefits are broader than in the Forand 
or in our 8 Senators Bill. 

Whatever plan is chosen, there is little argument about the need for some help 
for the aged to pay their health bills. I hope a sensible plan is enacted which 
would be of greatest assistance to those of our 16 million senior citizens who are 
most in need of help. 

Valley Math Students 
Obtain Summer Work 

Four Lebanon Valley junior mathe- 
matics majors have secured summer em- 
ployment in industry. 

Both Robert Kilmoyer and Donald 
Murray will work for insurance com- 
panies in Philadelphia. Bob will be em- 
ployed by the Penn Mutual Life con- 
cern and Don will serve the Provident 
Mutual Life company. 

Robert Daignault will be with the 
Travellers Life in Hartford, Connecticut. 
James Gruber will be employed as an as- 
sistant to the mathematical research head 
in the laboratory of Aircraft-Marine 
Products in Hafrisburg. ' 1 

I've Got A Problem 

Apparently the puzzle which appeared 
in the last issue of La Vie stumped the 
entire campus, for no solutions were 
submitted to the staff. The correct 
amount of the check the bank teller 
wrote was $41.85. 

La Vie wishes to obtain many diverse 
types of problems and puzzles for use in 
this column during the next publication 
year. Those possessing suitable material 
may submit it along with the correct 
answer and method of solution, to the 
La Vie, staff, office or mailbox at any 
time.' r ' 

Seasoned Students 
Expose L-Book As 
False Propaganda 

Most upperclassmen are probably un- 
aware that there is a section in the 
L-Book entitled "Introduction to College 
Life." This article purports to be de- 
signed to give the incoming freshman 
helpful, accurate information to familiar- 
ize him with life at LVC and to ease 
him into his first months of exciting! 
college life. 

It seems to us as well-seasoned fresh- 
men, however, that former fraudulent 
L-Book writers have not given freshmen 
the full unadulterated picture of what 
life in this academic community is real- 
ly like but have made some rather 
shameful discrepancies and completely 
misleading statements. 

For this reason, in a spirit of truth 
and justice (you know our school's mot- 
to) we have abandoned our usual fashion 
article (always written in that same seri- 
ous frame of mind) in order to present 
actual statements from this piece of 
propaganda along with truthful inter- 
pretations in light of a year's experi- 

Let us begin with what seems to be 
the thesis of this bit of stirring prose — 
"You're strictly on your own — that's col- 
lege life!" This piece of information was 
indeed startling on first reading. How- 
ever, being generously endowed with tol- 
erance and understanding, we will allow 
the core of the statement to stand verba- 
tim — with only a slight modification: 
"You're strictly on your own, except for 
three deans, six housemothers, countless 
members of Jiggerboard and Senate, un- 
limited supplies of sign-out sheets, and 
a bevy of upperclassmen devoted to such 
tasks as room inspection, dress inspec- 
tion, "Do you know your motto?" in- 
spection, and physical fitness inspection 
(i.e. duckwalking inspection) that's col- 
lege life!" 

With this modification we can go on 
to the next salient point which the au- 
thor attempts to convey: "Freshman 
Week is a week to help you become ori- 
ented to the campus and college life 
and to give you time to get settled in 
your new home." Translated freely, this 
means in particular that one becomes 
oriented to Engle Hall through taking 
hourly standardized tests interspersed by 
lectures on such fascinating aspects of 
college life as "Budgeting Your Time" 
and "Making Out Your Study Schedule." 

College is said to present a challenge 
to its students, and lectures of this sort 
indeed do this — mainly because it chal- 
lenges the harried freshman to find a 
minute of spare time between standard- 
ized tests and lectures in order to un- 
pack pen and paper to make up said 
schedule. In reality it might be said that 
Freshman Week is designed to condition 
the freshman to the frenzied sleepless 
existence he will lead for the next four 
years — frenzied and sleepless due to the 
fact that Freshman Week so exhausted 
him that he has not yet caught up on 
his work. 

We note on reading further that only 
one line of this piece of yellow journal- 
ism as devoted to the unique arrival of 
that hallowed and saintly group known 
as the upperclassmen, and this merely 
announces that they will arrive, skillfully 
dodging any reference to the dire implica- 
tions of their coming. Certainly if this 
handbook were written in a true spirit 
of truth and helpfulness, at least forty 
pages would be devoted to warnings, ad- 
monitions, and danger signals concern- 
ing this group. In fact, we would strong- 
ly advise that a complete handbook be 
drawn up for this purpose, containing 
diagrams of torture methods, instruc- 
tions for attaining top physical condition, 
and methods of first aid. 

We could continue indefinitely — for 
instance there is that statement about 
the laundry facilities and another dealing 
with gala social events — but we hear 
that there is a three-months vacation 
coming up (this may be just another 
L-Book rumor) and so we leave to take 
advantage of it and to keep all copies 
of this article from the hands of fresh-

Summer Sojourners Seek 
Some Singular Sanctuaries 

by Connie Myers 

It won't be long now. There are only 
exams, and for the lucky seniors, gradua- 
tion, to live through until freedom can 
be obtained. No more study, no more 
books, no more familiar faces and foods 
— there will be a chance to really get 
away from it all for at least three golden 
months; or will there be that chance? 

Replies from some 
of Valley's students 
and professors indi- 
cate that one will 
have a hard time 
avoiding all memo- 
ries of Lebanon Val- 
ley College this 
Myers summer. 
Of course, one can't escape by staying 
here in Annville while summer school is 
in session or even by going to Hershey 
Park to ride on the amusements. One is 
bound to find Valleyites like Ken Pieffer 
and Ken Light trying to convince the pay- 
ing guests to ride the carousel or buy a 
refreshing snack. 

If one retreats to the country, he must 
beware of the area around Myerstown, 
for Bill Derr will be there working on a 
farm. Ron Bell and Dave Pierce will be 
among the LV students at Mount Gretna. 

Frustrated by the familiarity of the lo- 
cal scene, one might try broader travel 
in the United States, but a trip to such 
western states as New Mexico might 
cross the path of Alonzo Trujillo, vaca- 
tioning on his native soil. Beverly Ed- 
wards, Mary Jane Fogal and Nancy Ford 
might also be seen working in the state's 
EUB mission hospital. Dr. Jean Love 
will be teaching psychology at the Uni- 
versity of New Mexico, in addition to 
painting in her spare time. 

Should the traveler turn from west to 
south, he might find Charlotte Hemperly 

Prof Conducts Study 
Of Various Phobias 
Of American People 

From the University of Rhode Island 

This being an election year the Ameri- 
can public is likely to register a rise in 
"politicophobia," according to Dr. L. 
Guy Brown, head of the URI Depart- 
ment of Sociology. 

"Politicophobia is a dislike of un- 
scrupulous political persons, and this dis- 
like may vary in degree from a rather 
mild antipathy to a morbid fear of such 
persons," Dr. Brown said during a dis- 
cussion of a glossary of 161 phobias he 
has compiled from his sociological in- 

Dr. Brown said politicophobia was 
particularly ascendant during the so- 
called Communist Congressional hearings 
conducted by the late Senator McCarthy. 
"I've known people who were so revolted 
by his tactics that they couldn't bear 
watching him on television or listening to 
the radio reports," he said. 

Other phobias cited by Dr. Brown in- 
clude aichmophobia, a dread of pointed 
instruments that makes people fear in- 
noculations; brontophobia, fear of thun- 
der and lightning; cynophobia, fear of 
dogs; topophobia, or stage-fright, and 
bibliophobia, or a fear of books — such as 
those dealing with subject matter like 
disease or insanity, for instance, which 
the person may fear. 

Other more common fears include 
epistilophobia, dread of receiving a let- 
ter or telegram; melissophobia, fear of 
bees and wasps; neophobia, fear of new 
things or the unknown — and some spe- 
cial aversions such as basiphobia, dread 
of walking; gynephobia, opposition to 
the society of women, musicophobia, fear 
of music, and xenophobia, dread of 

Every normal individual has some sort 
of phobia, but Dr. Brown said there's no 
need for anyone to have phobophobia, or 
'"fear of one's own fears." (ACP) 

busily at work for the federal govern- 
ment. She will serve as a secretary at 
Oak Ridge, Tennessee. 

A trip back to Pennsylvania would find 
Mr. Shay working on his dissertation. 
The lucky visitor might manage to get 
a ride with him on one of his occasional 
trips to Philadelphia. From this great 
city of commerce, one can really get a- 
way from it all by starting on a trip to 

The Continent is a large area. It might 
be difficult to run across Dr. Geffen, 
Sheila Taynton or Walt Smith there. 
However, if one were to arrive in Neu 
Chatel, Switzerland, he would most cer- 
tainly meet Dr. Struble and his wife. 
They will be spending one month of their 
European holiday in this land of lakes 
and mountains; then they will travel in 
France. After a visit with Mrs. Struble's 
relatives in Norway, they will return to 
Liege, Belgium, where Dr. Struble will 
read a paper (a La Vie, we hope). 

Perhaps a visit to the seashore will 
widen one's horizons. Joe Coen, Bill 
Renzulli and Jack Schindewolf will be 
among LVC students waiting to meet the 
needs of every weary wanderer. Brooks 
Slatcher and Al Apple may even drop by 
to sell the crabs some pots and pans. If 
all this familiarity proves to be too much, 
a trip to Blackwood, New Jersey might 
be of value. It is here that Jane McCann 
will be assisting her father at his funeral 

Perhaps a nice, quiet rest will be the 
best solution for spending the summer 
months. Joan Turner will be spreading 
her psychological balm on fevered brows 
at Wernersville State Hospital. Gary 
Cronrath can aid the more violent at Dan- 
ville State Hospital, where he will be 
working as an orderly. 

Wherever you go, whatever you do, 
have a safe, happy summer.

is already making plans with Quittie 
staff members. 

The contract for photography has been 
signed with Ensminger's of Harrisburg. 
Many of the spring activities have been 
photographed, and schedules are being: 
drawn up for the photographers' cover- 
ing of next year's events.
